Richard Travis (1913–1989) was an American actor in films and television.
He was born William Justice in Paragould, Arkansas.
Travis 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 (1942), 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 retired from acting to pursue a prominent career in California real estate under his birth name. He founded the William Justice Company and became an officer on the Beverly Hills Realty Board.
