Leslie Howard

TCM Star of the Month for June

During the 1930s, Leslie Howard–TCM’s Star of the Month for June–was Hollywood’s quintessential British leading man.

This comprehensive tribute to Howard’s all-too-brief career includes 20 of his movies, ranging from his first American film, 1930’s Outward Bound, to his final movie, Spitfire (1942), released in the U.S. just days after his death in 1943. His life was tragically cut short at age 50, when his plane was shot down during World War II.

Also included in our Howard screenings is Leslie Howard: The Man Who Gave a Damn (2016, TCM premiere), an intimate documentary about Howard’s life directed by Thomas Hamilton. This film includes once-lost home movies, both color and black and white, from the Howard family.
