Happy Birthday: Alan Ladd (1913–1964)

Festival Reviews

alanladdAlan Ladd (1913–1964)

Born: September 3, 1913 in Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA
Died: January 29, 1964 (age 50) in Palm Springs, California, USA

He and Veronica Lake made seven movies together: The Blue Dahlia (1946), Duffy’s Tavern (1945), The Glass Key (1942), Saigon (1948), Star Spangled Rhythm (1942), This Gun for Hire (1942) and Variety Girl (1947). In Variety Girl (1947), Star Spangled Rhythm (1942) and Duffy’s Tavern (1945), they appear as themselves.

I have the face of an aging choirboy and the build of an undernourished featherweight. If you can figure out my success on the screen you’re a better man than I.
