Famed Film Editor Dede Allen Dead At 86

Dede Allen, one of Hollywood's most celebrated film editors, has died in Los Angeles following a stroke at age 86. An extraordinary 1400-word obituary in Sunday's Los Angeles Times observed that Allen was the first film editor to receive sole credit on a movie for her work on Bonnie and Clyde . Other films included Dog Day Afternoon , Reds, and Wonder Boys , each of which garnered her Academy Award nominations, as well as The Hustler, Alice's Restaurant, Little Big Man, Night Moves, The Missouri Breaks, Serpico, Slaughterhouse-Five, and The Milagro Beanfield War . Greg S. Faller, professor of film studies at Towson University in Maryland, told the Times "It's hard to see the changes she made because most of what she did has been so fully embraced by the industry."
