Subject: Film editor Peter Zinner dies age 88

Written By: Philip Eno on 11/18/07 at 6:08 am

Film editor Peter Zinner, who worked on the first two Godfather movies with director Francis Ford Coppola, has died in California aged 88.

Zinner, who died of complications from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, was jointly nominated for an Oscar for his work on the first Godfather film in 1972.

Coppola paid tribute to Zinner's "great contribution" to his mob drama.

Zinner went on to win an Academy Award for his work on The Deer Hunter in 1978, which also won best picture.

Coppola told the Associated Press that the music which accompanied the film's final baptism sequence was Zinner's idea.
