Let us now praise Thelma Schoonmaker, the editor behind every Martin Scorsese film made in the last 33 years. The two met at NYU and worked together on Scorsese’s first full-length film, Who’s That Knocking on My Door?, and then worked together again on Woodstock in 1969 (pictured above). After a decade apart, Scorsese brought her on board to edit Raging Bull (1980) - and he’s never had another editor since.

And just in case she wasn’t already incredible enough, Ms. Schoonmaker was also married to legendary director, Michael Powell (of Powell/Pressburger fame), until his death in 1990 (Scorsese first introduced them). The 74 year old editor’s latest efforts can currently be seen onscreen in The Wolf of Wall Street.

Here’s a fantastic 13 minute clip of Scorsese and Schoonmaker working in the editing room together back in the late 1980s.

"Wolf of Wall Street contains 506 uses of the word "fuck" and now holds the record for the most uses of the word in a mainstream non-documentary film."
