Fleming was known for making unknown actors into stars and stars even more famous, so it was a sensation when he worked with German star Emil Jannings. Their film, The Way of All Flesh, was a critical and commercial success. One of his last works with Clara Bow, Hula, is also discussed in this chapter. Fleming then began work on Abie’s Irish Rose, which had been a smash hit on Broadway; however, despite the production’s popularity on stage, the film was a flop. Undeterred, Fleming attempted to find success with Disney’s new cartoon of Mickey Mouse, but his boss refused to support the project.

Keywords:   Emil Jannings, The Way of All Flesh, Hula, Abie’s Irish Rose, Mickey Mouse
