Howard Robard Hughes Jr. (December 24, 1905 – April 5, 1976) was an American business magnate, investor, record-setting pilot, engineer, film director, and philanthropist, known during his lifetime as one of the most financially successful individuals in the world. He first became prominent as a film producer, and then as an influential figure in the aviation industry. Later in life, he became known for his eccentric behavior and reclusive lifestyle—oddities that were caused in part by his worsening obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), chronic pain from a near-fatal plane crash, and increasing deafness.

Howard Hughes jr.was born on 24 December,1905.It states so in 2 books by Peter Brown and Pat Broeske (Howard Hughes:The Untold Story) and by Donald L.Barlett and James B.Steel (Howard Hughes: His life and madness).In the absence of a birth certificate which could not be found, his aunt Annette Gano Lumis and Estelle Sharp executed an affidavit stating this birthdate and place of birth (Houston ,Texas).Also, Howard`s tombstone states his birthday to be 24 Dec,1905.

Howard Hughes met Shelly Winters at a New Year`s party in the 40s.They dated once but not romantically as Shelly was very much married to Paul Miller who was a military man.Howard admired the fact that Shelly was faithful to her husband.

Hughes never dated Susan Peters. The love of his life was Jean Peters, whom he married in 1957 and divorced in 1971. She`s not even listed in the pictures shown on his page. Neither is Ella Rice (his first wife)

I`m afraid the Terry Moore story is true. I knew and worked with her father, and I interviewed her about his flight to Lake Arrowhead and subsequent landing on the lake. She knew details only a girl friend would have known. Author and film historian

He was born on September 24. He said he was born on Christmas Eve, but he was lying.

For the person who wanted to know if anyone else had as many girlfriends as Howard Hughes. From my own research, I can say that Scott Brady had as many or more in his lifetime. He must have been with thousands of women, including many of the women on this list.
