Ladd began his career as a grip on the Warner Brothers lot.
He appears briefly as a reporter in Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane".
Ladd appeared in a variety of movies... war movies, crime films, and westerns. His cool demeanor and deep voice made him a perfect match for many of these characters.
His children want on to have careers in show business. Alan's son David Ladd took up acting and his son Alan Ladd Jr. became a successful movie producer and studio executive.
When he appeared on movie magazines, the magazines always sold out.
