The 9th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Editing - Milton Carruth

Known for his work for Universal from 1929 to 1966, Milton Carruth was one of the regular go-to guys as far as editing on their lot. Aside from the an oddly prolific couple of years in the mid-1930s as a director (seven films between 1936-37), he racked up over a hundred credits in his thirty-seven year tenure in a wide range of genres. Although plying his craft to just about everything (most notably he cut the silent version of All Quiet On The Western Front in his early days), he became most well known for his work in the horror genre, in particular as the film editor for several of the classic Universal Horror features, including Dracula, The Mummy, Murders In The Rue Morgue, Werewolf Of London, among others. He also worked with Alfred Hitchcock on Shadow Of A Doubt, and while that film has prowess in just about every department, the contribution of Carruth cannot be denied.
