Richard Travis (actor)
Richard Travis (1913 – 1989) was an American actor in films and television.
Born William Justice in New Mexico, he began his Hollywood career in 1930s action films. The high point of his career was a lead role in the 1942 film comedy The Man Who Came to Dinner, playing opposite Bette Davis. He had some other fairly important roles in the early 1940s, but his career soon declined.
In 1947, he starred in the B movie Backlash, which has become something of a cult classic among film noir fans.
Travis was busy in TV roles in the early 1950s, but later retired to pursue a career in California real estate.
Not to be confused with the Actor Richard Travis (1955- ) whose film credits that begin in the 1980's have been mistakenly merged with the actor previously mentioned.
