I'm new to all this online posting. I only started so I could connect with other Leslie fans. I am happy to see that there are people out there who remember all his great films. He was an amazing actor and deserves to be remembered in a fitting manner other than "That actor who played Ashley Wilkes in Gone With the Wind".
Welcome to the comm! Nice to meet another Leslie fan. (:
A dear friend of mine, a lady who is now in her eighties, lived next door to Leslie Howard and knew him when she was growing up in Surrey. She still lives in the village though no longer in the same house. She took me to visit Leslie's old homestead and her old family home (at least from the outside) recently.Since then I've watched a few of Leslie's films and been impressed by his talent.
Sorry for my late reply. Thank you for your post. That must have been really great for her. His films are brilliant. Some are hard to find on DVD but they are worth searching for. Sadly it seems people are posting less and less on this site about him too...
