Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

With his abundant blond locks and winning smile, little Richard Headrick ("Itchie" to his co-workers) was the main reason for William S. Hart's regeneration in both The Toll Gate (1920) and The Testing Block (1920). A swimming prodigy prior to making his screen debut at the age of three, Headrick retired from show business at the ripe old age of six. He later became a colonel in the U.S. Air Force and a lay minister.
