British actor (1893–1943) best remembered for his roles in such classics as the Pygmalion, The Petrified Forest, and, most famously, as Ashley Wilkes in Gone with the Wind. During World War II he devoted his energies to the war effort and was killed in 1943 when the plane he was on was shot down by German fighters over the Bay of Biscay. Vintage matte-finish 7.25 x 10.5 photo of Howard as he appeared in The Scarlet Pimpernel, boldly signed in fountain pen and illegibly inscribed. A hint of subtle marginal soiling, tiny corner bends, and light rippling to edges, otherwise fine condition. R&R COA.
