LADDIE: The Man Behind The Movies  United States / 2017 / 83 mins

LADDIE is one daughter's journey to discover her father, Alan Ladd, Jr, the quiet studio head and producer behind such iconic films as STAR WARS, ALIEN, BLADE RUNNER, CHARIOTS OF FIRE, POLICE ACADEMY AND YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. Amanda Ladd-Jones' quest leads her to understand her father as the man that he is and the impact he's had on American Cinema. 

George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Ben Affleck, Morgan Freeman, Mel Brooks. Ron Howard, and Sigourney Weaver, to name a few, sit down with Amanda offering an inside look at this quiet, unassuming everyman, whom she only knew as Dad, and how his intelligence, kindness and unflagging faith in the people he hired turned him into one of the most successful movie moguls in the history of Hollywood.
