Scarecrow Video is honored to yet again welcome Oscar-winning film editor Thelma Schoonmaker to our store. Ms. Schoonmaker's collaborations with director Martin Scorsese range from Raging Bull and Goodfellas to The Departed and Shutter Island. She's won three Oscars so far in her career and is nominated again this year for her work on Hugo. Ms. Schoonmaker will be at Scarecrow on Wednesday, March 7 at 2 p.m. to meet with fans and sign copies of her films, along with other books and memorabilia you'd like to bring. Make plans now to skip class, take a late lunch, or call in sick so you don't miss this chance to chat with a modern film legend.
