Richard Wallace (August 26, 1894 – November 3, 1951) was an American film director.

He began working in the editing department at Mack Sennett Studios in the early 1920s. He later moved on to rival Hal Roach Studios where he began directing two-reel films, on some of which he collaborated with Stan Laurel. In 1926, Wallace began directing feature-length films.

Several of Wallace's memorable films include three Shirley Temple films, A Night to Remember (1943) with Loretta Young, and The Little Minister (1934) with Katharine Hepburn.[1] He was a founding member of the Directors Guild of America. He died of a heart attack.[2]
