Alan Ladd Jr. was an executive and producer in the American film industry. He was the son of actor Alan Ladd and Marjorie Jane, Ladd’s first wife, whom he met in high school.
Luckily, high school was a positive encounter for Ladd who immediately engaged in sports and took part in theater.
In spite of his slight appearance, Ladd dominated in swimming and track and, in 1931, he chose to prepare for the 1932 Olympics.
Preparing didn’t keep going long, be that as it may, as a physical issue would sideline him and hold him back from partaking in the Olympic preliminaries.
In spite of the securities exchange crash that impacted the whole country, the right on time to mid-1930s was turning upward for Ladd.
Still far from entering the universe of Hollywood, he worked various unspecialized temp jobs including fill-in as a service station orderly, sausage merchant, and lifeguard.
At the point when Ladd at long last broke into the diversion business, he played little piece parts in public broadcasts and neighborhood theater creations and ended up functioning as a hold on the Warner Bros. Studio.
