Alan Walbridge Ladd (September 3, 1913 – January 29, 1964) was an American actor and film and television producer. Ladd found success in film the 1940s and early 1950s, particularly in Westerns such as Shane (1953) and film noirs where he was often paired with Veronica Lake, such as This Gun for Hire (1942), The Glass Key (1942) and The Blue Dahlia (1946). Other notable credits include Two Years Before the Mast (1946), Whispering Smith (1949) and The Great Gatsby (1949). His popularity diminished in the late 1950s, though he continued to appear in popular films until his accidental death due to a lethal combination of alcohol, a barbiturate, and two tranquilizers.

Alan Ladd, unlike actors of today is manly, with a deep voice and very original in every sense.we watch Shane many times, brought home today for pa to watch it again after 30 years...

A very handsome actor. Enjoyed Boy on a Dolphin and Shane - wonderful films. I liked his calm and tough manner.
