Alan Ladd, Jr.


Alan Ladd, Jr. Brief Biography

Alan Ladd, Jr. (born October 22, 1937 in Los Angeles, California, USA) is an American film industry executive and producer. He is the son of actor Alan Ladd and Ladd's first wife Marjorie Jane (nee Harrold), whom Ladd had met in high school.

He is famous for giving George Lucas the go-ahead to make Star Wars and remained as Lucas' only support at times when the Board of Directors of 20th Century Fox wished to shut down production. The production was plagued by location difficulties, story problems and budgetary disagreements for a project that was mainly considered a pending embarrassment before the studio likely closed its doors. However, when Ladd saw first hand the audience's rapturous appreciation of the film at its first public screening at the Northpoint Theatre in San Francisco in early May 1977, he was moved to tears at seeing this unlikely production he supported against all odds become a spectacular validation of his efforts.
