      Victor Fleming

      Victor Fleming

      Highest Rated: 100% The Virginian (1929)

      Lowest Rated: 60% Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941)

      Birthday: Feb 23, 1889

      Birthplace: La Cañada, California, USA

      Were director Victor Fleming's legacy limited to his two best-known films - "The Wizard of Oz" (1939) and "Gone with the Wind" (1939) - he would have one of the most successful track records of any figure in Hollywood history. But the prolific filmmaker also oversaw a number of other popular and critically acclaimed films during his three-decade long career behind the camera, from "The Virginian" (1929) and "Red Heat" (1932) to "Treasure Island" (1934), "Captains Courageous" (1937) and "Joan of Arc" (1948). Furthermore, he was the guiding hand for some of the industry's most legendary figures in their most acclaimed roles, from Spencer Tracy's Oscar-winning turn in "Captains Courageous" to Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in "Gone with the Wind." A tough, unsentimental director, Fleming enjoyed a career that, while rarely spoken of in the same reverent tones as many of his peers, had more highlights than most of the canonized figures in critical and historical circles.
