I feel the pressure from other people coming at me. When shots don`t fall for one person I think it is a domino effect.

 

Now, we`re saying, as soon as we know someone is homeless or vulnerable to being homeless, get them in housing, and then work on their other problems. So that`s really the big shift, the big change.

Maria Grazia - I agree witn the GingerOnMars comment. Leslie wanted Bogie fot that part and that`s why Bogie called his daughter Leslie (5 years ago)
Maria - Perhaps sombody can help me clear up a mystery. Several years after the death of Leslie Howard, probably in 1951, my grandmother and my mother made a strange encounter on the beach of Alassio on the Italian Riviera. They met a gentleman in every respect equal to actor Leslie Howard. This gentleman spoke a little Italian and had a brief conversation with the two ladies. My mother and my grandmother did not see him anymore and were never able to know who that mysterious man could be. That was especially exciting for my grandmother who had been a big fan of the died actor. Does anybody know if Leslie Howard had a double? Thanks for the help you can give me. (5 years ago)
GingerOnMars - I`m not allowed to edit the biography section of this page, but I`d like to say to anyone interested: It wasn`t Bogie who helped Leslie get the part in The Petrified Forest; It was Leslie who insisted Bogie be case, stating `No Bogart, No Howard`. Leslie was a lot more famous than Bogie at that time (1936). (7 years ago)
