All The King’s Men

I just read a two part article in CinemaEditor Magazine about the editing of the original “All the King’s Men.” Written by the editor, Robert Parrish, who passed away in 1995, it offers a vivid look at studio politics in the late ’40s, and the way pictures can be changed in editing. It only covers the short period between the film’s disastrous first preview, when Parrish was brought in to save it, and picture lock, but maybe because it’s so compressed, it makes a great story. Unfortunately, it’s not available on line, but if you’re a subscriber and you missed it, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Part 1 is in the 2nd quarter, 2006 issue. Part 2 is in the current, fourth quarter issue.
