Leslie Howard is an amazing person and shouldn’t be remembered just because he played the furry Ashley in Gone with the Wind. Scarlett O’Hara was in the big movie for some reason. I fell in love with him part of the time. He was a big star in the 1930s and had at least a few top performances. Without him, Humphrey Bogart might not have existed, and he was the number of people who died at the hands of Germans in World War II. One of a million victims. If it weren’t for that incident, he might be known as an actor.
Of course he just stayed like this. Howard is not only physically similar to Stevie Gigon, but also sounds a bit like him (or just a subjective impression), in his fourth and fifth decade between his hometown of England and Hollywood. Up balance. He is a damn gentleman, but he has also played all kinds of emotional and vulnerable people, and he knows how to be sharp when needed. This is a series of characters in a great movie, in addition to Vihor, it also includes Pygmalion, Berkeley Square, Of Human Bondage, The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Petrified Forest.
In the movie “Petrified Forest”, Humphrey Bogart got his first real opportunity. Even so, he also attracted attention to himself, and the famous Duke of Mandy was locked in by Howard. They played the play together in the theater, and when it came time to make the movie, the studio wanted a bigger name, but Leslie Howard insisted on calling it Bogart. The Petrified Forest then made a higher offer for the bogie, until the main characters of the High Mountains, the Maltese Eagle and Casablanca arrived, and everything made him the greatest man ever. They became good friends of the two of them, and Bogart did not forget Leslie nine years after his death, so he named his daughter Leslie Howard Bogart after someone he owed him a lot.
Leslie Howard’s death occurred in 1943, when the Germans shot down his plane from Portugal to Britain. Seventeen passengers including Howard were killed. According to some theories, the real target was Winston Churchill, who was allegedly believed by the Germans to be on the plane. This may be true, but another more reasonable statement is that Goebbels personally ordered the “expulsion” of Leslie Howard because he not only led strong anti-Nazi propaganda through film and media appearances, but he was also made public. The secret active British spy. This theory was later confirmed many times.
He spent 50 years in the world, made some timeless movies, influenced the world, and gained another timeless movie icon, and eventually died in the struggle against fascism. It is difficult to find an actor who does more. Leslie Howard.
