    He went to the Broadway theater where Fred and Adele Astaire were currently playing in 'Lady Be Good' and recruited the famous couple for a 12 week engagement. It was a lucrative deal, not just for the Astaires, but for Hayward too, and he decided to pursue this new career. It was a propitious time to become a talent agent. The film industry was booming and many stage actors and actresses were looking to the new medium for employment. Hollywood studios were beginning to churn out movies at a formidable rate and were constantly looking for new talent and for suitable plays and books which could be adapted for the screen. Hayward, as agent, was able to link it all together. He began to swiftly sign up some of the top performers and writers of the time and developed a reputation for getting the highest salaries for his clients who, as well as Fred Astaire, came to include top stars such as Judy Garland, Boris Karloff, Greta Garbo and Ginger Rogers. In 1932 he became involved with John...

    Hayward and Selznick did not subscribe to this and went to different studios offering deals for their clients which caused salaries to be increased across the board through healthy competition. As a result, raids on the talent of competing studios became commonplace and Hayward became very unpopular amongst some of the Hollywood power brokers, in particular, Louis B. Mayer, head of MGM. As time went on, Hayward became more and more successful at attracting top Hollywood talents to his agency. He would fly between East and West coasts three times a month and never even met many of his clients , preferring instead to do his deals over the telephone. Ernest Hemingway described him as “the greatest agent in the world.”

    He had immediate success, with his first production, 'A Bell for Adano' running from December, 1944 to October, 1945, and in November,1945 he followed it with the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'State of the Union'. In 1948 he produced 'Mister Roberts' on Broadway, starring his old client, Henry Fonda. Hayward won the 1948 Tony Award as Best Producer and in 1955 the play was made into an equally successful movie, also starring Fonda. In 1949 Leland co-produced the play 'South Pacific' along with Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II and Joshua Logan. Together they jointly won the 1949 Tony Award for Best Producer of a Musical. The play was made into a hugely successful movie in 1958. Leland was also the producer of Henry Fonda's Broadway play "Point of No Return" which ran for a year from December, 1951. In 1959 he co-produced with David Merrick the Broadway play "Gypsy" which was also later made into a movie starring Natalie Wood. Other notable movie productions he made at this time includ...

    True to form Hayward could not resist going into the aviation business. He did so just before the start of WWII, partly with his own money and partly with funds supplied by his wealthy clients. He bought a small flying school near Phoenix, Arizona and succeeded in obtaining a lucrative Government contract to train U S Army pilots. By the end of the war hundreds of pilots from different nationalities had completed their training there and at two other flying schools which Hayward operated. In addition Hayward was a member of the board of Trans World Airlines and in 1946 was a co-founder of Southwest Airways. a regional company linking several cities in Nevada, Oregon and California. The company later became part of Delta Airlines.

    Hayward was married in all five times. His first wife was Inez Gibbs, whom he married in 1921, divorced in 1924, remarried in 1930 and divorced for a second time in 1934. The actress, Margaret Sullavan, his second wife, was the mother of his three children, Brooke, Bridget and William. Hayward and Margaret married in 1936 and divorced 13 years later. Margaret committed suicide in 1960. Their daughter, Bridget, committed suicide ten months later. Their son, William, committed suicide in 2008, by shooting himself. The family's dysfunctional life has been recorded in the surviving daughter Brooke's autobiography, 'Haywire'. Hayward's third wife was Nancy “Slim” Hawks {born Mary Gross). She was an international model and socialite married to the director Howard Hawks. Upon meeting Hayward she divorced Hawks. Hayward divorced Margaret Sullavan and the couple married in 1949. In 1960 Hayward and "Slim" were divorced and only hours later Hayward married Mrs. Pamela Digby Churchill, the div...
