Film Editor Dede Allen, who worked on classic films like "The Hustler," "Serpico," and "Little Big Man," has died at the age of 86 after suffering from a stroke. Starting as a messenger for Columbia Pictures as a young woman, Allen went on to become renowned for her work, and was the first editor to receive sole credit for a film: 1967's Bonnie and Clyde. WNYC's culture producer Sara Fishko, who was once a film editor herself, tells us more.
