Richard Wallace

Biography: Richard Wallace was an American director, beginning in the late silent era. His films provide tremendous pleasure; in the Hollywood tradition, they were made to entertain and to make money, and succeeded at both of those objectives. Wallace's film career spanned 1926-1950, and he worked with many of the most likable performers of the period, including Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Lucille Ball, George Murphy, Eve Arden, Pat O'Brien, Fred Allen, Jack Benny, John Wayne, and Deanna Durbin. A capable director of comedies centering around teenagers, he supervised Gloria Jean's first movie, and Shirley Temple's last. Often his films are very quickly paced, as in Captain Caution (1940) and Bombardier (1943). Wallace had his share of misfires, such as John Meade's Woman (1937, with Edward Arnold), and Fallen Sparrow (1943, with John Garfield). Among his memorable films were the Gary Cooper/Nancy Carroll version of Shopworn Angel (1929), Ronald Colman in Masquerader (1933), KatharineRichard Wallace was an American director, beginning in the late silent era.
