!!Tropes associated with the actor:
* IAmNotSpock: He eventually came to view ''Film/BriefEncounter'''s success as a hindrance to his career, blinding people to his other achievements. When one too many interviewers asked about the film, he slammed down the phone after yelling, "Anyone would think I made nothing else."


Arguably Howard's most famous role is the unflappable Major Calloway in Carol Reed's ''Film/TheThirdMan'', which provided the template for his career. In movies like ''The Cockleshell Heroes'', ''The Key'' and ''The Roots Of Heaven'' he exemplified the StiffUpperLip British officer. Howard played against-type as the eccentric AntiHero of Reed's ''Outcast of the Islands'' and cameoed in ''Film/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays''. In 1960, he earned a Best Actor nomination for Jack Cardiff's ''Literature/SonsAndLovers''.

Howard's appeal and screen image were well-summarized by Richard Attenborough, director of ''Film/Gandhi'', who said that he needed an actor to play Judge Broomfield who could convey British justice and fair play with a minimum of screen time, and naturally turned to Howard. That said, he was equally adept at [[EvilIsHammy scenery-chewing villains]], as his roles as Captain Bligh and Lord Cardigan demonstrate.
