While there's been a lot of talk lately about the way female directors tended to be overlooked over the course of history, it's interesting to remember that many *male* directors availed themselves of the services of *female* editors to achieve their vision (and let's not forget that editing is as integral to the success of a movie as the directorial job).

Having said that, let's pay tribute to a few female editors, a "Big Four" that made history through their editing talent and whose legacies might have been overshadowed by the directors' "big" names.

Which of the Big Four of female editors has the most impressive body of work?
