Women Film Editors by David Meuel

Women Film Editors: Unseen Artists of American Cinema by David Meuel
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 5.7MB
Overview: When the movie business adopted some of the ways of other big industries in 1920s America, women-who had been essential to the industry’s early development-were systematically squeezed out of key behind-the-camera roles. Yet, as female producers and directors virtually disappeared for decades, a number of female film editors remained and rose to the top of their profession, sometimes wielding great power and influence. Their example inspired a later generation of women to enter the profession at mid-century, several of whom were critical to revolutionizing filmmaking in the 1960s and 1970s with contributions to such classics as Bonnie and Clyde, Jaws and Raging Bull. Focusing on nine of these women and presenting shorter glimpses of nine others, this book tells their captivating personal stories and examines their professional achievements.
