Tina Hirsch, ACE Discusses How an Experimental Decision Influenced "Twilight Zone: The Movie"
EditFest NY 2011 - Tina Hirsch, ACE Discusses a Scene from the Film "Twilight Zone: The Movie". Tina Hirsch is an American film editor. She has been elected to membership in the American Cinema Editors, and in 2000, she became the first woman to become president of the honorary society. She edited numerous films since the late 1960s and 1970s, including the cult film “Death Race 2000’ (1975) and the sequels “More American Graffiti” (1979) and “Airplane II: The Sequel” (1982). In the 1980s she received the opportunity to work for producer Steven Spielberg, editing the "It's a Good Life" sequence in “Twilight Zone: The Movie” (1983) and then “Gremlins” (1984). She directed the film “Munchies’, cited as similar to the latter. ‘Twilight Zone: The Movie” is a 1983 anthology fantasy-science fiction horror film produced by Steven Spielberg and John Landis as a theatrical version of The Twilight Zone, a 1959 and 1960s TV series created by Rod Serling. The film stars Vic Morrow, Scatman Crothers, Kathleen Quinlan and John Lithgow with Dan Aykroyd and Albert Brooks in the prologue segment. Burgess Meredith, who starred in four episodes of the original series, took on Serling's position as narrator. Unlike Serling, he did not appear on screen, nor did he receive screen credit, though his name appears in the end credits. In addition to Meredith, six actors from the original series (William Schallert, Kevin McCarthy, Bill Mumy, Murray Matheson, Peter Brocco and Patricia Barry) had roles in the film.
