Leslie Howard, A Restless Traveller

Since his first journey to New York, in 1920, until 1939 when he left the United States to go back to England, Leslie Howard had been living a very complicated life, continuously crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Generally, his family accompanied him, but sometimes he had to travel alone.
Trying to retrace his countless journeys has been a very hard job.
