As you may have heard, Sally Menke, award-winning film editor and the only film editor Quentin Tarantino’s ever worked with, died Monday while hiking in the Hollywood Hills. Tarantino had these “Hi, Sally” reels made for every film they worked on together.
While they were originally made to show the cast’s appreciation for her efforts, I think now they serve as a touching tribute to the woman behind the scenes of Tarantino’s legacy in Hollywood.
Prior to the “Hi, Sally” reel for Death Proof, Tarantino speaks of their working relationship.
The Guardian does a pretty nice piece on her here.
