Operation Mincemeat's Love Story vs. the Real Jean Leslie and Ewen Montagu

Operation Mincemeat's love story is compared to the real-life relationship between Ewen Montagu and Jean Leslie, which the movie exaggerates. Colin Firth and Kelly MacDonald portray Montagu and Leslie, who in real life did get somewhat wrapped up in the characters they created to fool the Nazis. It's also true that British Intelligence Officer Charles Cholmondeley became interested in Jean Leslie as well. Related Article: Operation Mincemeat: History vs. Hollywood
