Goodbye, Sally Menke


Horrific and tragic. Film editor Sally Menke’s body was found at the bottom of a ravine in Griffith Park. She apparently left for a hike with her dog and never returned. This turned out to be on the hottest day in Los Angeles recorded history. Sally’s dog was also found, thankfully alive. No report yet on the cause of Sally’s death.

Sally was best known as Quentin Tarantino’s editor. The two made a tremendous team. My condolences to Sally’s family and friends and to Mr. Tarantino for the extreme loss. Sally’s death is a loss to the entire film community.

Among Sally’s non-Tarantino films are:

ALL THE PRETTY HORSES
NIGHTWATCH
MULHOLLAND FALLS
FOUR ROOMS (MAN FROM HOLLYWOOD segment)
THE SEARCH FOR INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

as well as many others.

She is already missed.
