1977

He came to Fox President Gordon Stulberg to request consideration for making George Lucas' Star Wars.

The production was plagued by location difficulties, story problems and budgetary disagreements for a project that was mainly considered a pending embarrassment before the studio likely closed its doors. However, when Ladd saw first hand the audience's rapturous appreciation of the film at its first public screening at the Northpoint Theatre in San Francisco in early May 1977, he was moved to tears at seeing the unlikely production he and Stulberg had supported against all odds become a spectacular validation of their efforts.
