Fire Horse
Otto Preminger
December 05, 1906 Otto Ludwig Preminger Film director
Otto Ludwig Preminger was an Austro–Hungarian-born American film director who moved from the theatre to Hollywood, directing over 35 feature films in a five-decade career. He rose to prominence for stylish film noir mysteries such as Laura (1944) and Fallen Angel (1945). In the 1950s and 1960s, he directed a number of high-profile adaptations of popular novels and stage works. Several of these pushed the boundaries of censorship by dealing with topics which were then taboo in Hollywood, such as drug addiction, rape, and homosexuality. He was twice nominated for the Best Director Academy Award. He also had a few acting roles.

Born 5 December 1906, his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Fire Horse. The Fire Horse either succeeds beyond our wildest imagination or goes down in flames; they are the movers and shakers of the world. He tends to be volatile in the extreme and not afraid to take even the most dangerous risks. Depending on how much artistic talent he has, he can be a flamboyant, charismatic performer. He adds excitement to our lives and is great to have around---when he can control his temper and innate restlessness.
