A veteran minstrel and vaudeville performer, dignified-looking Richard Cummings became a favorite of director D.W. Griffith who featured him as Lillian Gish's father in Daphne and the Pirate (1916). A busy supporting player at Griffith's Fine Arts company in the 1910s, Cummings continued to play men of means and power in the following decade, retiring after only one talkie, The Social Lion (1930).
