Alan Ladd was an American actor and film and television producer. Ladd found success in film in the 1940s and early 1950s, particularly in Westerns, such as Shane (1953), and in film noirs. He was often paired with Veronica Lake in noirish films, such as This Gun for Hire (1942), The Glass Key (1942), and The Blue Dahlia (1946). Ladd also appeared in ten films with William Bendix; both actors coincidentally died in 1964.
