Richard Theodore Adams[1] (March 17, 1890 – September 24, 1973)[2] was an American film actor who appeared in nearly 200 films between 1926 and 1952. Adams appeared with his parents in their vaudeville act and later attended Cornell University.[1] He served in World War I and World War II.[1] Adams' film career spanned more than three decades and included roles "on both sides of the law".[3] He worked primarily in B-Westerns, often as a villain. Studios for which he worked included Monogram and PRC, and he was often seen in films that starred Johnny Mack Brown or Bob Steele.[2] He also appeared in serials, including The Mysterious Pilot (1937), Holt of the Secret Service (1941), Daredevils of the West (1943), and King of the Rocket Men (1949).[3]

Late in his career, Adams acted on television Westerns, including The Cisco Kid, Cowboy G-Men, and The Lone Ranger.[2] On September 24, 1973, Adams died in Los Angeles, California, at age 83.[1]
