Show Summary Details


While Penn was attempting to complete his first feature film with a twenty-three-day shoot and a budget of only $400,000, he was startled by how Folmar Blangsted presented himself as Hollywood's most creative editor and how he said he was going to edit Penn's movie. However, on the twenty-fourth day of production, Penn found that he had been terminated from the job as a different name marked his supposed parking space. Penn was found to be a de facto editor. Since he dealt with live TV drama, his operations often required around three to five cameras. Also, he was editing while on air between shots. When Robert Mulligan left after being assigned to head a project entitled The Death of Billy the Kid, Fred Coe then resorted to giving the responsibility to Penn in spite of how he had earlier stated that he no longer wanted to deal with films.
