Eric Fleming was an American actor, known primarily for his role as Gil Favor in the long running CBS television series Rawhide. Fleming was born in Santa Paula, California, an only child with an unhappy childhood. Born with a club foot, he needed crutches to get around and was often severely beaten by his father. At the age of eight he attempted to kill his father with a gun, which jammed.

During the years of The Depression he dropped out of school and worked at various jobs until he joined the Merchant Marine, before joining the United States Navy in 1942 for World War II. He served as a Seabee in a naval construction battalion. He received severe facial injuries during a bet in which he was attempting to lift a 200 pounds weight and had to undergo extensive plastic surgery to reconstruct his forehead, nose and jaw.
