Festival Reviews

ericfleming.jpg Eric Fleming (1925–1966)

Born: July 4, 1925 in Santa Paula, California, USA

Died: September 28, 1966 (age 41) in Tingo Maria area, Peru

Drowned while filming a TV scene in Peru at age 41.

During Fleming’s enlistment in the Seabees in 1942, his face was shattered when a 200-pound block of steel slipped from a hoist. A long convalescence and four plastic surgical procedures created the face familiar to Rawhide (1959) viewers.

Fleming was unmarried and had no children. He was to have married long-time companion Lynne Garber within two days of his death.

His mother’s maiden name was Anderson.
