A talented film editor who earned the nickname "the film doctor" for his unique ability to recut foreign films for stateside distribution and salvage films that many dismissed as hopeless, Fima Noveck also wasn't averse to stepping in front of the camera for the occasional supporting performance. Noveck immigrated to New York from Yaroslavl, Russia, in 1947, and after a decade of struggling in the film industry, the ambitious aspiring filmmaker eventually scraped up enough celluloid to shoot the DGA Award-nominated Reflections of New York. In the following decades, editing jobs became more frequent for Noveck, with a move to the West Coast in the 1980s expanding his career as he ran post-production facilities for such notables as Trans World Entertainment and Spelling Films. Some of the dedicated editor's best-known work can be seen in the Lina Wertmüller films Swept Away, Love and Anarchy, and Blood Feud. Minor film roles include appearances in Nixon, The Trouble With Spies, and McHale's Navy. On March 30, 2004, the longtime editor died in Los Angeles following an extended illness. Noveck was 86.
