Leslie Howard

Howard as Ashley Wilkes in ''[[Gone with the Wind (film)|Gone with the Wind]]'' (1939) Leslie Howard Steiner (3 April 18931 June 1943) was an English stage and film actor, director, and producer. Howard 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.

He is probably best remembered for playing Ashley Wilkes in ''Gone with the Wind'' (1939). He had roles in many other notable films, 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 Second World War activities included acting and filmmaking. He was active in anti-German propaganda and 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 Bay of Biscay (in Cedeira, A Coruña), on which he was a passenger.
