'Conan' Director Richard Fleischer Dies
Schwarzenegger says, "(He was) a true Hollywood legend. He was a man of great talent and an extraordinary director."
Fleischer was born into a showbiz family - his father, Max Fleischer, was the animator behind Betty Boop and Popeye. Starting off making B-movies in the late 1940s, Fleischer quickly made a name for himself, going on to direct hits including Tora! Tora! Tora!, the Charles Bronson-starring Mr. Majestyk, and Doctor Dolittle with Rex Harrison - although he admitted the famously unpopular Harrison needed "a swift kick in the head."
Fleischer is survived by his wife Mary, their three children and five grandchildren.
