Hollywood's Mr. Fix-It

Learn how he saved "The Wizard of Oz" and "Gone With the Wind."

In his new book "Victor Fleming: An American Movie Master," Michael Sragow tells how the under-sung director pulled off two of the greatest fix-it jobs in Hollywood history. The movies in question make nearly everyone's "ten best" lists, and they're both from 1939: "Gone With the Wind," and "The Wizard of Oz."

Fleming has nearly 50 movie directing credits to his name, but you haven't heard of most of them. So why was 1939 such a special year for him and for Hollywood? Bill Newcott introduces the book that tells the story.
