Richard Rosson was the younger brother of director Arthur Rosson, and the older sibling of actress Helene Rosson and cinematographer Hal Rosson. Inaugurating his own film career in 1912, Rosson was primarily an actor until 1922, though he did contribute the screenplay for his 1914 starrer End of the Feud. From 1926 to 1943, he was a director, turning out such films as the horrific The Wizard (1927), the chucklesome The Very Idea (1929), and the flag-waving West Point of the Air (1935) and Corvette K-225 (1943); he also toted up several assistant-director credits during this period. Richard Rosson committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning at the age of 60.
