Leslie Howard - Not something new to me i guess, but the real story of his death would be interesting. I suppose it is safe to say he was a "Representative" of the British Government on a "Diplomatic": mission. I always thought it seemed a stupid idea to fly those planes to and from Lisbon. The British had lost TONS of "Civilian Ships" in the North Atlantic. They bombed Millions of "Civilians" in Germany, but they want to feign outrage over the loss of a "Civilian Airplane" flying across The English Channel. Its not like that plane would carry tourists to Portugal/Spain in the middle of history's biggest war. Scratch one, talented, British actor.
