9780312411619: In Search of My Father: A Portrait of Leslie Howard

When the loss of the plane bringing Leslie Howard home from Lisbon in 1943 was first announced, Anthony Asquith said 'If he is really lost, we have lost one of the greatest men in British films. People thought of Howard as a film star...but he was infinitely more than that; he was a brilliant technician. He had the art of the cinema at his finger tips

This was a fitting tribute to Leslie Howard as a great man of cinema, the star of such famous films as 'Gone With the Wine,' 'The First of the Few,' 'Pimpernel Smith' and many more.

In this remarkable book his son, Ronald Howard, sets out on a quest to discover and disclose the true nature of his supremely gifted and sensitive father. He pursues in detail the events surrounding his father's mysterious death and vividly reconstructs what were to be his last days in Spain and Portugal. The vying theories as to why the civil plane was shot down by a squadron of Junkers 88 fighters are tested for plausibility.
