Dick Richards (born 1936) is an American film director, producer and writer.
After working as a photographer, Richards went on to direct commercials. His career in film began by writing and directing a western, The Culpepper Cattle Co. (1972), and continued with such films as Farewell, My Lovely (1975), March or Die (1977), and Man, Woman and Child (1983).
Though initially considered to direct Tootsie (1982), complications arose with the script, and he assumed the role of producer instead, for which he received an Academy Award nomination. He had also been considered to direct Jaws (1975), but was dropped from the project because he could not distinguish the shark from a whale.
