Ralph Rosenblum

Ralph Rosenblum was an American film editor who worked extensively with the directors Sidney Lumet and Woody Allen. He won the 1977 BAFTA Award for Best Editing for his work on Annie Hall, published an influential memoir When the Shooting Stops, the Cutting Begins: A Film Editor's Story. Towards the end of the World War II in 1945, Rosenblum worked as a filmmaking apprentice in the U. S. Office of War Information. Following the war he became van Dongen's assistant while she was editing Robert Flaherty's film Louisiana Story, was credited as an editor on Of Human Rights, which van Dongen produced and directed. Much of Rosenblum's work in the 1950s and early 1960s was in television. With Sid Katz and Gene Milford, he formed a company, MKR Films, that provided editorial services for television shows and corporate films. In the 1960s, Rosenblum edited four films directed by Sidney Lumet, starting with Long Day's Journey into Night; these films, which were all serious dramas, were important to Rosenblum's career.

The montage ending of Fail Safe, depicting the last few moments of life on earth, the use of concentration camp flashbacks in The Pawnbroker, brought Rosenblum his first industry recognition. Paul Monaco has summarized Rosenblum's editing innovations on The Pawnbroker, as well as their influence, as follows, "In his work on The Pawnbroker, Rosenblum imitated devices from several French films of the previous decade, but he extended them. Like Dede Allen, Rosenblum broke editing rules. More and like her his innovations shifted editing away from its traditional reliance on telling a story to the creation of a new and penetrating subjectivity in the feature film."In 1966, Rosenblum was nominated for an American Cinema Editors "Eddie" award for A Thousand Clowns, directed by Fred Coe. In 1968, Rosenblum was hired as an "editorial consultant" to help a young Woody Allen hone a large amount of footage into what became Allen's first film, the mockumentary Take the Money and Run. Rosenblum went on to edit the next five of Allen's films, including Annie Hall, for which he won the 1977 BAFTA Award for Best Editing with Wendy Greene Bricmont.

Interiors was Rosenblum's last film with Allen. Rosenblum and Allen came to a mutual decision. Susan E. Morse, Rosenblum's assistant editor on several of Allen's films, became his successor and edited Allen's films for the ensuing twenty years. For the last film, Allen was involved in the editing and was fearful concerning the reception of the film. Allen's biographer Eric Lax quoted Rosenblum about the film: He managed to rescue Interiors, much to his credit, he was against the wall. I think, he was testy, he was short-tempered. He was fearful, he thought. But he managed to pull it out with his own work; the day the reviews came out, he said to me,'Well, we pulled this one out by the short hairs, didn't we?' In 1979, Rosenblum published a book written with Robert Karen, When the Shooting Stops, the Cutting Begins: A Film Editor's Story. Gallagher described the importance of this book as follows: Ralph Rosenblum did a service to editors everywhere with the 1979 publication of his memoir When the Shooting Stops... the Cutting Begins, a popular volume which gave the first insider's explanation of what goes into film editing....

In the book Rosenblum revealed that he had saved several films by creatively reshaping the footage, such as William Friedkin's The Night They Raided Minsky's and Woody Allen's first major film as a director, Take the Money and Run. Rosenblum's revelations helped bring credit to the film editing profession, forced scholars to reconsider editorial contributions. According to his widow, Davida Rosenblum, "He was an autodidact when it came to his prodigious knowledge of music, used both jazz and classical music as temporary or permanent scores in many of the films he edited. Many of the composers exposed to his temporary tracks used them as a guide."Rosenblum worked as a director for about five years, commencing with the documentary film Acting Out. His films included Summer Solstice, made for television and, actor Henry Fonda's last film. For the last eight years of his life, Rosenblum taught film and film editing at Columbia University as a Full Professor of Film Directing despite having not attended college himself.

In his final decade, Rosenblum taught editing at the International Film and Television Workshops in Rockport, Maine. For the final four years, he was an Artist in Residence.
