    Howard was born in Cliftonville, Kent, Eng­land the son of Mabel Grey (Wal­lace) and Arthur John Howard-Smith. Al­though Howard later claimed to have been born in 1916- the year quoted by most ref­er­ence sources- he was born in 1913 (this is sup­ported by school and other records). His fa­ther was an in­sur­ance un­der­writer for Lloyd's of Lon­don, serv­ing as rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Colombo, Sri Lanka and else­where; Trevor spent the first eight years of his life trav­el­ling around the world. He was ed­u­cated at Clifton Col­lege(to which he left in his will a sub­stan­tial legacy for a drama schol­ar­ship) and at the Royal Acad­emy of Dra­matic Art (RADA). In 1933, at the end of his first year, he was cho­sen as best actor in his class for his per­for­mance as Bene­dict in a school pro­duc­tion of Much Ado About Noth­ing. While Howard was still study­ing, he made his pro­fes­sional debut at the Gate The­atre in Re­volt in a Reformatory(1934). When he left school he worked reg­u­l...

    Al­though sto­ries of his coura­geous wartime ser­vice in the British Army's Royal Corps of Sig­nals earned him much re­spect among fel­low ac­tors and fans alike, files held in the Pub­lic Record Of­fice re­veal that he had ac­tu­ally been dis­charged from the British Army in 1943 for men­tal in­sta­bil­ity and hav­ing a "psy­cho­pathic per­son­al­ity". The story, which sur­faced in Ter­ence Pet­ti­grew's bi­og­ra­phy of the actor, pub­lished by Peter Owen in 2001, was ini­tially de­nied by Howard's widow, ac­tress Helen Cherry. Later, con­fronted with of­fi­cial records, she told The Daily Tele­graph (24 June 2001) that Howard's mother had claimed he was a holder of the Mil­i­tary Cross. She added her hus­band "had noth­ing to be ashamed of" with an ho­n­ourable mil­i­tary record.

    After a the­atri­cal role in The Re­cruit­ing Of­fi­cer (1943), Howard began work­ing in films with an un­cred­ited part The Way Ahead (1944), di­rected by Carol Reed. He was in a big stage hit, A Sol­dier for Christmas (1944) and a pro­duc­tion of Eu­gene O'Neill's Anna Christie (1944). Howard re­ceived his first credit for The Way to the Stars(1945), play­ing a pilot.

    Howard's per­for­mance in The Way Ahead came to the at­ten­tion of David Lean, who was look­ing for some­one to play the role of Alec in Brief En­counter (1945). Lean rec­om­mended him to Noël Cow­ard, who agreed with the sug­ges­tion, and the suc­cess of the film launched Howard's film career. He fol­lowed it with I See a Dark Stranger (1946) with Deb­o­rah Kerr, and Green for Dan­ger (1947), star­ring Alas­tair Sim. Both films were suc­cess­ful as was They Made Me a Fugi­tive (1947). That year British ex­hibitors voted Howard the 10th most pop­u­lar British star at the box office. So Well Re­mem­bered(1948) was made with Amer­i­can tal­ent and money and was a hit in Britain but lost money over­all. Howard was re­united with Lean for The Pas­sion­ate Friends (1949), but the film was not a suc­cess. How­ever, The Third Man (1949), which Howard starred in along­side Orson Welles and Joseph Cot­ten for Carol Reed from a story by Gra­ham Greene, was a huge in­ter­na­tional suc­cess, an...

    Howard's first Hol­ly­wood film was Run for the Sun (1956), where he played a vil­lain to Richard Wid­mark's hero. He made a cameo in Around the World in 80 Days (1956) and again played a vil­lain to an Amer­i­can star, Vic­tor Ma­ture, in War­wick's In­ter­pol(1957). Howard starred in Manuela (1957) then sup­ported William Holden in Carol Reed's The Key (1958), for which he re­ceived the Best Actor award from the British Acad­emy of Film and Tele­vi­sion Arts. When William Holden dropped out of the lead of The Roots of Heaven (1958), Howard stepped in - the star part in a Hol­ly­wood film (al­though top billing went to Errol Flynn). After a thriller Mo­ment of Dan­ger (1960) he was in Sons and Lovers (1960), for which he was nom­i­nated for an Acad­emy Award for Best Actor. He was nom­i­nated for a BAFTA on four other oc­ca­sions. and re­ceived two other Emmy nom­i­na­tions, one as a lead and the other as a sup­port­ing actor. He also re­ceived three Golden Globe Awardnom­i­na­tion...

    Howard had a change of pace sup­port­ing Hay­ley Mills in Pretty Polly (1968). He went back to mil­i­tary roles: The Charge of the Light Brigade (1968), as Lord Cardi­gan, and Bat­tle of Britain (1969), as Air Vice Mar­shal Keith Park. He had sup­port parts in Lola (1969) and Ryan's Daugh­ter(1970), the lat­ter for David Lean. He made a Swedish film The Night Vis­i­tor (1971) then set­tled into a ca­reer as a char­ac­ter actor: To Catch a Spy (1971), sup­port­ing Kirk Dou­glas; Mary, Queen of Scots (1971), as Sir William Cecil; Kid­napped (1971); Pope Joan (1972); Lud­wig (1972); The Of­fence (1972), with Sean Con­nery; A Doll's House (1973), for Joseph Losey; Who? (1974), sup­port­ing El­liott Gould; and Catholics(1974) for British TV. He ap­peared in some hor­ror films - Craze (1974), Per­se­cu­tion (1974) - and the more pres­ti­gious 11 Har­row­house (1974), in which his wife Helen Cherry starred with him. In The Count of Monte Cristo (1975), he men­tored Richard Cham­ber­lain. H...

    Howard man­aged to ap­pear in some pres­ti­gious movies to­wards the end of his ca­reer: The Deadly Game (1982), The Mis­sion­ary (1982), Gandhi (1982), George Wash­ing­ton (1984), Shaka Zulu (1986), Dust (1985) and Peter the Great(1986). At the time of film­ing White Mis­chief (1988) on lo­ca­tion in Kenya dur­ing 1987, Howard was se­ri­ously ill and suf­fer­ing from al­co­holism. The com­pany wanted to sack him, but co-star Sarah Mileswas de­ter­mined that Howard's dis­tin­guished film ca­reer would not end that way. In an in­ter­view with Ter­ence Pet­ti­grew for his bi­og­ra­phy of Howard, Miles de­scribes how she gave an ul­ti­ma­tum to the ex­ec­u­tives, threat­en­ing to quit the pro­duc­tion if they got rid of him. The Dawn­ing(1988) was his final film. Through­out his film ca­reer Howard in­sisted that all his con­tracts in­clude a clause ex­cus­ing him from work when­ever a cricket Test Matchwas being played.

    Howard recorded two Shake­speare per­for­mances, the first, recorded in the 1960s, was as Petru­chio op­po­site Mar­garet Leighton's Kate in Caed­mon Records' com­plete record­ing of The Tam­ing of the Shrew; the sec­ond was in the title role of King Lear for the BBC World Ser­vice in 1986.[citation needed]
