Fleming, Victor

Fleming, Victor

▪ American director
born Feb. 23, 1883, Pasadena, Calif., U.S.
died Jan. 6, 1949, near Cottonwood, Ariz.

      one of Hollywood's most popular motion-picture directors during the 1930s. With producer David O. Selznick, he was responsible for completing Gone with the Wind (1939).

      Fleming started in the industry as a stunt car driver in 1910, later doing camera work for D.W. Griffith. Serving in the photographic section during World War I, he acted as chief photographer for President Woodrow Wilson at Versailles, France. Fleming was later associated with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and 20th Century-Fox studios, where he made his reputation by guiding such actors as Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy to stardom.

 Fleming directed his first feature film, When the Clouds Roll By, in 1919, and he soon became famous for creating highly charged scenes full of dramatic action. His early popular sound films Red Dust (1932) and Treasure Island (1934) were followed by the classic The Wizard of Oz (1939), in which Fleming artfully combined fantasy and realism. It was hailed as a creation of rare enchantment and catapulted Judy Garland to fame. Fleming's later films included Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), Tortilla Flat (1942), A Guy Named Joe (1943), Adventure (1946), and Joan of Arc (1948).
