Biographical Summary

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Leslie Howard Steiner (3 April 18931 June 1943) was an English actor, director and producer. He also wrote many stories and articles for The New York Times, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair and was one of the biggest box-office draws and movie idols of the 1930s.

Active in both Britain and Hollywood, Howard is probably best remembered for playing Ashley Wilkes in Gone with the Wind (1939). He had roles in many other notable films, often playing the quintessential Englishman, including Berkeley Square (1933), Of Human Bondage (1934), The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934), The Petrified Forest (1936), Pygmalion (1938), Intermezzo (1939), "Pimpernel" Smith (1941), and The First of the Few (1942). He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for Berkeley Square and Pygmalion.

Howard's World War II activities included acting and filmmaking. He was active in anti-German propaganda and shoring up support for the Allies—two years after his death the British Film Yearbook described Howard's work as "one of the most valuable facets of British propaganda". He was rumoured to have been involved with British or Allied Intelligence, sparking conspiracy theories regarding his death in 1943 when the Luftwaffe shot down BOAC Flight 777 over the Atlantic (off the coast of Cedeira, A Coruña), on which he was a passenger.

    Leslie Howard 04.03.1893 - 06.01.1943 (50 years old)
    Leslie Howard Collection: Best remembered as Scarlet O'Hara's obsession in Gone With the Wind, Ashley Wilkes, actor Leslie Howard had a reputation as "a perfect Englishman, slim, tall, intellectual and sensitive", and answered the call of his native land during WWII.

    Born Leslie Howard Steiner in London, 1893, his father was a Hungarian-Jewish immigrant merchant, and his mother who had been raised Christian came from German-Jewish extraction. Raised in the upper-middle-class, Leslie was educated at Alleyn's School in London and worked as a bank clerk before the outbreak of the First World War. He served with the Northamptonshire Yeomanry but suffered from shell shock and was invalided out of the service in 1916. His doctors recommended he take up acting as therapy. Howard married Ruth Evelyn Martin and began appearing in shows on London's West End, but he found his real success across the pond on Broadway. He appeared in Aren't We All? (1924), Outward Bound (1925), and The Green Hat (1925). He also displayed a keen understanding of how plays came together and often juggled duties as actor, producer, and director. He shared producing and directing credits for the fantasy Berkeley Square (1929) and starred in both the play and the 1933 film version. He also produced and starred in 1935's The Petrified Forest which ran for 197 performances featuring newcomer Humphrey Bogart as the "heavy".
