Alan Ladd Jr. was an American film industry executive and producer. He was the son of actor Alan Ladd and Ladd’s first wife Marjorie Jane, whom Ladd had met in high school.
He began his filmography career as a film agent in 1963. He relocated to London to produce, making nine films, including The Walking Stick, A Severed Head, Villain, The Nightcomers, and Zee and Co.
He came to Fox President Gordon Stulberg to demand thought for making George Lucas’ Star Wars.
Stulberg signed the creation and they stayed as Lucas’ help now and again when the directorate of twentieth Century Fox wished to close down creation.
The creation was hit by area hardships, story issues, and monetary conflicts for a task that was principally viewed as a gamble to the studio.
Notwithstanding, when Ladd saw the crowd’s cheerful enthusiasm for the film at its first open screening at the Northpoint Theater in San Francisco toward the beginning of May 1977, he was moved to blissful tears at seeing the impossible creation he and Stulberg had upheld despite everything.
