Burly, menacing and gravel-voiced, Cramer specialized in villainous roles in many low-budget westerns, but is today best remembered for his several appearances with Laurel and Hardy. He also appeared with W. C. Fields in his short film, The Fatal Glass of Beer, which Mack Sennett produced.

He was sometimes billed as Rychard Cramer[1] or Dick Cramer.

On Broadway, Cramer portrayed Rube in Buddies (1919) and Hernando in Sancho Panza (1923).[2]
