George Crone

George Crone (1894–1966), also known as George J. Crone, was an American director and editor, whose career spanned both the silent and sound film eras. He began his career cutting the silent film Let's Be Fashionable in 1920. Between that film and his final screen credit, editing Arruza (released in 1972), he edited over 40 films, and directed over a dozen more. Arruza was released 6 years after Crone's death. Crone had worked with director Budd Boetticher, on Boetticher's obsession, a docudrama regarding his friend Carlos Arruza, the famous bullfighter. Boetticher had used ten cameras to film 2 of Arruza's bullfights in January and February 1966, and Crone was tasked with editing the different fights together. Crone died shortly after completing the tasks, in June 1966.[1] Earlier in his career, he had been the original editor on Citizen Kane, before being replaced by Robert Wise.[2]
