Robert Schable (August 31, 1873 – July 7, 1947)[1] was an American stage and screen actor as well as a stage manager from Hamilton, Ohio.


A longtime stage player from the Charles Frohman company since the 1890s, Schable began in silent films in 1919.[2] In films he often played comedic, character parts or men with a European flair. He died, from Ptomaine poisoning, in Hollywood in 1947.[3] Alternately IMDb has his death as a suicide.

Two films Schable appeared in have been restored, Sherlock Holmes (1922) and The Man and the Moment (1929).[citation needed]

Broadway shows in which Schable appeared included On With the Dance (1917), The Fallen Idol (1915), Inconstant George (1909), Jack Straw (1908), De Lancey (1905), The Duke of Killicrankie (1904), Captain Dieppe (1903), The Mummy and the Humming Bird (1903), The Mummy and the Humming Bird (1902), The Second in Command (1901), Richard Carvel (1900), Beau Brummell (1899), Cyrano de Bergerac (1899), and The Man of Destiny (1899).[4]
