I'd rather be David Ladd's father than Alan Ladd any day.
I'm the most insecure guy in Hollywood. If you had it good all your life, you figure it can't ever get bad, but when you had it bad, you wonder how long a thing like this will last.
If you can figure out my success on the screen, you're a better man than I.
I just want to make pictures that are entertaining. I'll leave the scenery chewing to someone else.
What good will a tax break do me if I'm crippled for life?
Being a good host offsets the deprivation and loneliness of my youth.
I was a dummy in school.
Maybe I thought too much about picking up the money and not enough about the really good parts.
I've always had a great respect for the picture business. It's been good to me.
Just as Jimmy Stewart and Tyrone Power get 50 percent of the profits, so do I.
I never fail to feel let down when I see myself on the screen.
I'm shy and can't for the life of me barge around and slap people on the back. I sit in a corner by myself and am tickled to death when someone comes over to talk to me.
