#Quote
1I'm going to continue making films that interest me and are relevant. In the end, I just want to be remembered as a good guy who didn't screw anybody while I was in the business. I think it's better to be remembered as a decent person than just another moviemaker in the history of Hollywood.
2I tried to get Braveheart (1995) off the ground when I was president of MGM and I had given it to Mel but he turned it down because of scheduling conflicts. When I departed MGM/UA, my separation agreement allowed me to take two projects with me. So I took Braveheart because I knew it was a good story and I admired Randall Wallace's scribe work so much.The project went to the back-burner for awhile. Two-years later Mel gave me a call out-of-the-blue and said: 'That project Braveheart, what did you end up doing with it'? I told him 'nothing' and he replied: 'Well, I can't get it out of my mind, I keep thinking about it. Can we meet on it'?

7His departure from Twentieth Century Fox cost the studio the opportunity to distribute the Indiana Jones films. The name "Indiana Jones" was inspired by a character named "Nevada Smith", played by Steve McQueen in the movie of the same name. The character first appeared, however, in The Carpetbaggers (1964), in which the role was played by Ladd's father, Alan Ladd.
8Left Fox after fighting to make "Star Wars" against the wishes of its board. "Star Wars" was the first blockbuster movie for which merchandise represented a major share of its profits, and though the film was a huge success, which gave Fox its greatest profits ever, Ladd had not secured these "ancillary" merchandising rights for the studio.
