Fun Film Fact 07/18/11

Leslie Howard, best known for playing Ashley Wilkes in Gone With The Wind, never intended to be an actor. He was working as a bank clerk when World War I broke out and he enlisted. After the war he was diagnosed as shell-shocked (which is now known as post-traumatic stress disorder) and was advised to take up acting as a form of therapy. Within a few years he became a well-respected actor in both London and New York.
