Gawky, comic actor Victor Potel started out in one- and two-reel comedies, starring in Universal's Snakeville series. Potel went on to essay supporting parts in feature films of the 1920s, then played bits and walk-ons in such talkies as Three Godfathers (1936) and The Big Store (1941). He was a member of filmmaker Preston Sturges' unofficial stock company from 1940's Christmas in July until his death in 1947. One of Victor Potel's final film roles was diminutive Indian peddler Crowbar in The Egg and I (1947), a character played by Chief Yowlachie, Teddy Hart, Zachary Charles, and Stan Ross in the subsequent Ma and Pa Kettle series.
