The story of one of the most important and least-understood
jobs in moviemakingfilm editingis here told by one of the
wizards, Ralph Rosenblum, whose credentials include six Woody Allen
films, as well as The Pawnbroker, The Producers, and
Goodbye, Columbus. Rosenblum and journalist Robert Karen
have written both a history of the profession and a personal
account, a highly entertaining, instructive, and revelatory book
that will make any reader a more aware movie-viewer.
