Anne Coates, ACE — ‘Lawrence of Arabia’
I’m Sean P. Malone in Los Angeles, California and this is The Camera Report.
Our guest today is Anne Coates, a film editor with over 60 years of experience. And though her prolific career covers numerous classics such as Becket, Murder on the Orient Express, The Elephant Man, What About Bob?, In the Line of Fire, Out of Sight, and Erin Brockovich, she is kind enough today to reminisce about her groundbreaking work on one of the greatest films of all time, Lawrence of Arabia. In our interview with Anne, she shares how she first became interested in filmmaking, how she got the job editing David Lean's masterpiece, and other insightful stories from the nearly two year process of making Lawrence.
