film editor Owen Marks
- PAUL DONAT
It was Pacific Lightweight Boxing Champion Georgie Marks who led the parade of his brothers into Warner Bros. When he retired from the ring, he took a job as a film cutter at WB and was soon advancing through his friendship with Jack Warner, a boxing enthusiast. Georgie brought his brothers into the studio: Owen,who also started as a film cutter, Benny, who worked his way into the chief projectionist position, Sammy, their kid brother, and one other, whose strident labor activities soon made him persona non grata at WB. Owen grew into a superior film editor to a degree that he was offered an opportunity to be a director. But fear of failure over the security of his editing position made him turn it down. However, his exceptional work brought him assignments on the studios top films.
