Hmmm I've seen far fewer films than I expected from the director of the greatest Hollywood movie of all time. But than he hadn't made all that many films post-sound, Fleming died of a heart attack in 1949 aged 60.

1)Gone With the Wind
2)The Wizard of Oz
3)Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde (1941)
(my favorite Jekyll and Hyde film)

Average Rating 4.2 out of 5

Posted Image The Apartment's hardly the greatest Hollywood film of all time George, a good time-passer at best (ooh).
Some Like it Hot on the other hand is definitely up there.Posted Image

btw I can't believe you don't own the 4-disc Gone With the Wind set, or is that a typo?

I like that a lot too, but I grew up with the Spencer Tracy version. March was a bit too ape-like, though he did win an Oscar for it. Tracy was a lot more subtle and believable as the evil Hyde. There's a funny story I read somewhere, where a visitor to the set seeing Spencer Tracy at work remarked "Which part is he playing now?".Posted Image

I'm not sure where you see that. I definitely do not own it. The only Fleming dvd I own is The Wizard of Oz.

Alright keep your hair on guv'nor, I honestly didn't know until this thread that owning Gone With the Wind or admitting to owning Gone With the Wind is not a cool thing for any self-respecting film buff to do. Posted Image

There's nothing wrong with owning Gone with the Wind if you like it, but there's definitely something wrong with the information that I own it, and I just didn't know where you were getting that information from. Posted Image

For some reason while reading Steve's post, I just got this image: Vivien Leigh overacting as usual, while an audience of poor munchkins are grimacing and covering their ears, when BAM, a house falls on her, and they all start cheering. Posted Image
