600tom_rolfFriends and colleagues recall a “true icon of editing and a great leader in the editing community.” Hollywood is remembering Tom Rolf, the Academy Award-winning editor of The Right Stuff and dozens of other films who died July 14 at age 82.

He won an ACE Eddie trophy for John Badham’s WarGames (1983), received additional ACE nominations for Philip Kaufman’s The Right Stuff (1983) and Robert Redford’s The Horse Whisperer (1998) and earned a BAFTA nom for Taxi Driver. Read more at
