"Film Comment's" Top 75 Picture Editors
(CIRCA 1977)

Thirty-five years ago, our colleagues at the prestigious film journal Film Comment in New York published special 24-page section celebrating film editors — “Prime Cut” — which appeared in its March-April 1977 issue. To celebrate the Guild’s 70th anniversary five years ago, they graciously allowed us to reprint copy from their section.

In their issue, Film Comment’s editors selected the top 75 editors from the United States, Great Britain and France, from the perspective of 1977. Given that we are now celebrating the Editors Guild’s 75th anniversary, we decided to reprint the list, as a point of reference.  Editors are listed alphabetically.
