Susan E. Morse

Film editor Susan E. Morse, ACE is best known for her more than twenty year collaboration with writer/director Woody Allen, beginning as an assistant film editor on his 1977 film “Annie Hall,” uncredited co-editor on “Interiors,” and her first solo editing credit on “Manhattan,” for which she received her first British Academy Award Nomination for Best Film Editing. In addition to her prolific collaboration with Allen, Morse has edited films for directors Steve Gordon, Jim Kouf, Lee Davis, Marc Lawrence, Chazz Palmintieri and, more recently, first-time director Massy Tadjedin, as well as serving stints as an associate film editor on Walter Hill’s “The Warriors” (with a team of editors headed by David Holden), and briefly on Martin Scorsese’s “Raging Bull” (with longtime friend and three time Oscar- winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker).

The 32 feature films Morse has edited have earned worldwide critical acclaim, including a total of 41 Oscar nominations and 7 Oscars including an Oscar nomination for editing “Hannah and Her Sisters.”  In addition, two of the films she has edited with first- time writer/directors “Arthur” (with Steve Gordon in 1981) and “Two Weeks Notice” (with Marc Lawrence in 2002) were major successes at the box office.
