Euan Lloyd (6 December 1923 – 2 July 2016) was a British film producer. He married Audrey Clark, (Jane Hylton). Their daughter is Rosalind Lloyd. Getty Images shows the wedding photograph of Lloyd's second marriage to Patricia Mahar, Patricia Donahue, dated the 17th of November, 1961. They had one child, Sam Donahue.
He began his career directing short travelogue documentaries, starting with April in Portugal in 1954 (not released until 1956). He worked in publicity, giving away Anita Ekberg at her wedding to Anthony Steel.
Lloyd befriended Alan Ladd while making The Red Beret (1953) and Ladd gained Lloyd a job on production for Warwick Productions. He worked for that company for a number of years, then went to work for Carl Foreman.
Lloyd's first credit as producer came when Richard Widmark, with whom he had made A Prize of Gold (1955), asked him to co produce The Secret Ways (1961). He went on to produce The Poppy Is Also a Flower (1966), Murderer's Row (1966), and westerns such as Shalako (1968) Catlow (1971) and The Man Called Noon (1973). Lloyd obtained finance from international sources.
He put everything he had behind the $10 million action film The Wild Geese (1978). He followed with The Sea Wolves, (1980) starring Roger Moore, David Niven and Gregory Peck and Who Dares Wins (1982). His last film was Wild Geese II (1985) starring Scott Glenn and Laurence Olivier.
Lloyd appeared in the short documentary The Last of the Gentleman Producers which accompanied the 2004 release of The Wild Geese on DVD, and also contributed to the audio commentary alongside Roger Moore and film editor/second unit director John Glen. He died on 2 July 2016 at the age of 92.
