Victor Fleming has directed some of the best films of all time. He has been actively involved in several different films, yet not many people know his name. As the director of some of the most iconic pictures, I have chosen to do Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in honor of his birthday.
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a popular well known tale that most everyone knows. A scientist who believes that there is good and evil in everyone. One night he brews together a concoction that turns him into a hideous monster man. The man becomes known as Mr. Hyde reeks havoc for all around him. Dr. Jekyll slowly becomes aware of his alter ego and what he is doing. However, can he be stopped in time before disaster strikes for Dr. Jekyll. All before this happened he was set to be married to the love of his life and a good reputation among many people. He had a life that many would want. Yet, this one experiment threatens to ruin it all. Will he be able to make it out alive?
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is just one of the many classic movies that Victor Fleming directed. This film came out in 1941 to frighten audiences and give us a glimpse in the mind of a mad scientist. Born on February 23, 1889 Victor Fleming leaves behind a legacy that is forever known through movies that he dedicated his time to.
