Married to actress Josephine Dipp (1868-1939), Ricketts directed the first motion picture in Hollywood. Starting in the honkytonks of London, he became of the best Shakespearean actors of his day and appeared on Broadway in Miss Simplicity with Helen Lord and Frank Conway, Over a Welsh Rarebit with Adella Baker and Once Upon a Time with Josephine Victor and Colin Campbell. Ricketts worked up to a few days before his death. Leaving for work at Universal, his bad cold developed into pneumonia and his health quickly went down hill to his death. His wife was not informed of his death at the time, as she was suffering from a stroke she'd suffered in December 1938.
