Leslie and Conchita

Journeys end where lovers meet: Leslie and the Spanish actress Conchita Montenegro - long-time sweethearts - meet in Spain just before Leslie's death.

The story of Leslie's visit to Spain and secret discussion with Franco about the country's neutrality is told in Jose Rey's book El Vuelo de Ibis,(May, 1943.) published in 2008.
