LADDIE: A documentary about the most influential movie mogul you’ve never heard of.
With 150 Academy Award nominations and 50 Academy Award wins, he’s one of the most successful movie moguls in history.
His filmography consists of 164 films, including STAR WARS, POLICE ACADEMY, ALIEN, THELMA & LOUISE, NORMA RAE, CHARIOTS OF FIRE, BLADE RUNNER, MOONSTRUCK, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, THE BRADY BUNCH and BRAVEHEART.
Brad Pitt, Susan Sarandon, Reese Witherspoon, Will Smith and Harrison Ford landed on the map due to breakout roles in his films.
He has helped launch the careers of directing legends including George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Ron Howard, Mel Gibson, Richard Donner, and Mel Brooks.
But most likely…you’ve never even heard his name.
Meet Alan Ladd, Jr., affectionately known as “LADDIE.”
Unlike his father, famed actor Alan Ladd, Laddie built his career behind the camera, as a prolific producer, executive, and three-time studio chairman.
Never one to tout his achievements and rarely agreeing to interviews, Laddie, now approaching his sixth decade of moviemaking, reveals the inside story behind his mammoth success.
Through a series of conversations initiated by Laddie’s daughter, we gain access to Laddie and an illustrious cast of Hollywood professionals; hear their stories in their voices, about Laddie—the most influential movie mogul you’ve never heard of…but won’t soon forget.
