After finishing The Farmer Takes a Wife, Fleming and a friend went on a long safari in what is now Kenya. He shot big game and returned to the U.S. revitalized and ready to take on his next big project, the adaptation of Pearl S. Buck’s novel The Good Earth. Fleming and MGM made extensive preparations for the movie, but just before shooting, Fleming developed a blood clot and was confined to bed. The film was then given to director Sidney Franklin.
