  • One of the best actors ever!

    In my opinion, Leslie Howard is one of the greatest actors of his time. Most people know him as Ashley in Gone With the Wind, but I think this is not his best role; he didn't like Ashley Wilkes, and I can understand why. I love all his movies and every character he played: Peter Standish, Tom Collier, Philip Carey, Sir Percy Blakeney, Alan Squire, Holger Brandt, Basil Underwood, Henry Higgins, Horatio Smith, they'll be always my heart. He was so classy and charismatic, so charming and yet unpretentious... A great actor and greater man.

    What I admire most in Leslie Howard is his sense of humour. He always seemed to tease himself in his films, not taking his role entirely seriously and producing his characteristic little giggle. I love him as professor Higgins, as Sir Percy or professor Horatio Smith......but in every movie he managed to distinguish himself with his gentle, cunning and silvertongue acting. w Leopardi

    Though mostly only remembered for his role in the "Gone With the Wind," Leslie Howard was so much more than Ashley Wilkes. Watch "It's Love I'm After" and see a witty, hilarious performance. Watch "The Petrified Forest" and see serious drama. Watch "Devotion" and see a romantic leading man. Leslie Howard played all of those roles, and apparently in real life even played the role of a secret agent who eventually died for his country. He was an endlessly fascinating man who acted on the stage, produced, directed, and starred in films. It's a shame he isn't more widely remembered today, as he accomplished all of the above, starred in landmark classic films, and also helped the careers of future legends--Humphrey Bogart, to name one. Leslie Howard has been gone for over 65 years, but he deserves to be remembered. Watching his films keeps his memory alive!

  • A man for all seasons

    Leslie Howard was unique. Beautiful to look at, a man of steel who was a poet, the most charming matinee idol of stage and screen, with a golden voice for radio. He was a great lover on and off the screen and at the same time a devoted family man. He moved behind the camera to direct. He preferred writers to actors. That is one side to the man known as Leslie Howard. In his real life he was far more adventurous than his movie roles. But that is another tale.

  • He was a great actor

    I have loved his acting ever since i first saw Of Human Bondage.That was the only time i kind of hated Betty Davis in a role.He has been my favorite actor ever since and i can't get enough of his movies.

  • Clearly underrated!

    The first time I saw Gone with the Wind, I fell in love with Ashley Wilkes. He was a great actor and a great human being; dying while in action during World War II. His name should be listed as one of the greats, along with Clark Gable and Cary Grant.

    Leslie Howard is beyond words. He was remarkable and very impressive to watch. Most know him only as Ashley Wilkes in Gone With The Wind but, he was a thousand times better than the weak character that he played. His acting abilities were larger than Ashley Wilkes and certainly could surprise you in some films with things you thought he was incapable of doing. His best performances are probably Pygmalion, The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Petrified Forest. Of course every film of his is wonderful and many are quite rare and that's why TCM's website has a wonderful place to vote for his films to be on DVD! Anyway, Leslie Howard will never be forgotten in my book for as long as the book stands!

  • Leslie Howard - man of great class!

    Leslie Howard was a fine actor and he had such style and class. He could also be funny. All his movies with Bette Davis are first rate. With the least know one; It't Love I'm After being one of the best! In Pygmalion he is also first rate.

  • Leslie Howard is the best!

    Leslie Howard is one of the best actors there is. He has class, grace, and charisma, and it was a shame that he had to die too soon. He had high potential in directing and could have directed ans starred in many great movies to come and it would most likely lead him to an Oscar.
