Editor Sally Menke has died

Oscar-nominated editor Sallen Menke, career-long collaborator with Quentin Tarantino, has died at the age of 56.  Heat exhaustion seems the likely cause, seeing as she was hiking with her dog amid brutal California heat and was found near a trail in Bronson Canyon.  Menked received Academy Award nominations for Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds, and won numerous awards for her superb work throughout her career.  She was a first-rate talent and it’s a shame to lose her.
