Trivia:

He originally planned to become a lawyer. He quit his night-school law classes to move to Los Angeles in 1943, and began his editing career at MGM. He worked mostly in TV because of the fast pace -- a TV episode was edited in a week, while it might take an entire year to edit a movie. See more »
