The details (from wikipedia)


Lloyd Nosler (March 13, 1901 – September 26, 1985) was an American film editor, director, and screenwriter who worked in Hollywood in from the 1910s through the 1950s.


Lloyd was born in Riverton, Oregon, to Charles Nosler and Ida Belle Wright. He left school at the age of 14, and worked for a time as a paperboy for The Spokesman Review.

He later took on a job as an office boy at Universal Studios after his family relocated to Los Angeles. In 1918, he was given a promotion to the photography department, where he cut his teeth editing Kaiser, Beast of Berlin. The next year, after editing Cassiday of the Air Lanes, he became specifically renowned for cutting action films after catching the eye of Tom Mix. Work on films like Ben Hur followed at MGM; the studio kept him under contract for seven years.

In 1937, he went back to school, compelled by a desire to change careers and pursue screenwriting. During World War II, however, he used his editing skills to cut more than 200 service films while serving as a briefing officer in the U.S. Air Force.
