Film editor Sally Menke, who edited most of Quentin Tarantino’s movies, was found dead this morning this morning in the Beachwood Canyon area of the Hollywood Hills a day after she was reported missing when she didn’t come home after a hike with her dog in blistering heat conditions. She was 56. Menke edited Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bill duo, and Inglourious Basterds. She was nominated for an Oscar for her work on Pulp Fiction and Basterds. In addition to her collaborations with Tarantino, Menke also edited Oliver Stone’s Heaven & Earth, Lee Tamahori’s Mulholland Falls and Billy Bob Thornton’s All the Pretty Horses.
