Richard "Skeets" Gallagher (July 28, 1891 – May 22, 1955) was an American actor.[1] He had blue eyes and his naturally blond hair was tinged with grey from the age of sixteen.[citation needed]


He was born on July 28, 1891 in Terre Haute, Indiana. As a child he was nicknamed "Skeets" short for mosquito, due to his frequent speedy bursts of running.[2]

Gallagher was educated at Rose Polytechnic Institute and Indiana University. He first studied civil engineering and then law, but ended up on the stage. He began his career by writing a one-act skit that he took to a local theatre group.[citation needed]

He started acting in vaudeville, and later signed up with Paramount Pictures.

He was often billed as Skeets Gallagher on Broadway and in Hollywood. He appeared in Frank Capra's first feature film For the Love of Mike (1927), a silent film which is now considered a lost film, and several early sound films.

He died on May 22, 1955, in Santa Monica, California, of a heart attack.[1]
