The Internet Broadway Database (IBDB) has him appearing in only eight plays over the next 23 years, the last of which was 1928's The Big Fight which had a month run at the Majestic Theatre in September/October 1928.
In 1929, he would move to Hollywood and begin his film career, which spanned the first fifteen years of the sound era of the industry; he would appear in over 50 films during that time. At the beginning of his career in the movies, he would have several leading roles, as in his first film, Alibi, but for the most part he was relegated to the smaller roles of a character actor. Stubbs died on May 9, 1950, at the age of 75.
