The thing is he was a war hero and he didn't come back. So he's just forgotten.

He was the only real movie star who was killed in World War II and nobody ever honors him for that.

I do, Princess.  I do indeed.  I believe that people in Britain honour him all the time.

 

I always point out that he died in battle and that he was a big movie star.

 

Because Carole Lombard died after entertaining the troops she was the first American movie star to  die in WWII.

 

Howard and Niven made Spitfire together about the man who designed that airplane in the hopes of drumming up interest in the war.

Hey Princess of Tap.

 

Glad to hear that you are a fan of Leslie Howard.  I have 3 of 5 of your favorite Howard films.  In my research it seems that Mr. Howard was a good person.  He had to give his financial stake in Gone With The Wind to return to England.  England had a rule that you could not return if you had financial assests outside England.  He gave up a lot to return to fight Germany...ultimately his own life....the man was a hero....and one not many in America really remember.

 

Hey Columbo....good points.  I want to see Spitfire in the near future.  This was a fun page to research and write.
