Marjorie Fowler was an editor who had a career that spanned more than 40 years in film and television. Her first project involved working with the legendary director Fritz Lang, editing his film noir thriller "The Woman in the Window" in 1944. During the '50s, she edited seven films, including the 1958 Oscar-winning romance "Separate Tables," and began working in television, particularly on the action series "The New Adventures of China Smith" in 1954. The '60s were an even more hectic decade for Fowler--she edited 10 films, the most notable being her Academy Award-nominated effort for the 1967 family comedy "Doctor Dolittle,"starring Rex Harrison as the veterinarian who can talk to animals. By 1972, Fowler had edited her one of final films, the sci-fi sequel "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes," working almost exclusively in television for the remainder of her career. Her most ambitious TV gig covered much of the '70s, as an editor for the family classic "The Waltons," for which she edited 39 episodes. In 1973, Fowler won an Emmy as the co-editor of the William Holden crime drama about an L.A. street cop, "The Blue Knight." She continued editing--as well as writing an episode of "The Waltons" and scripting the TV movie "A Wedding on Walton's Mountain"--into the '80s, before settling into retirement.
