Sally Menke, Tarantino’s Film Editor, Dead at Age 56

Sally Menke, the editor on every film since Reservoir Dogs, passed away yesterday in California. She was 56 years old.

The two-time Academy Award nominee (Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds) had been out hiking in the record Los Angeles heat prior to her death. Temps in the area had reached a high of 113 degrees.

Police and bloodhounds were called in after Menke and her dog became separated from her friend. Sally’s body was later discovered in Beachwood Canyon. (Her dog, still alive, was reportedly beside her at the time.)

An autopsy will be conducted to determine if other factors aside from heat played a role in her death.

Friday’s Friars Club Roast of Quentin Tarantino has been postponed. A new date will be announced at a later time.
