Leslie Howard: The Man Who Gave a Damn ★★★

Dry but comprehensive (especially considering his short-lived career - you wouldn't expect this to run so comfortably as a feature - I wasn't aware at all of the earliness or strangeness of his death so that was interesting in itself) documentary - as with a lot of Talking Pictures things, I wasn't really sure what I was gonna get (the name didn't immediately ring any bells though of course I know him like most from Gone with the Wind) but it certainly added to the smorgasbord of old Hollywood stuff I appear to have decided to gorge myself on this year.
