I admire your work aimed at making Leslie remembered. I believe the following link may be of interest you
All my best,
Quite an amusing article, but I think the opinion expressed by the anonymous producer is quite outdated. Many blond actors have become sex symbols in more recent times. I immediately thought of Robert Redford, but we can add many other names here. Male sex symbols of the 30s-50s were very different from the present ones, and dark-haired machos seem to be less popular now. Even James Bond has become a blond man.
Anyway, Leslie Howard’s attractiveness was (and still is) mainly an intellectual charm, a unique charm withstanding the test of time.
I presume the opinion in the article of 1960 referred to black-and-white films. Colour films seem to be more favorable for blond men 🙂 And certainly the tastes have changed greatly in the 70 years’ span of time. As for Leslie’s charm I fully share your opinion.
