Dede AllenLegendary film editor Dede Allen died Saturday at her home in Los Angeles, the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. She was 86.

Allen edited a number of high-profile films in her 50-plus-year career. She caught her first big break in 1961 with the Paul Newman vehicle 'The Hustler.' That same decade, Allen went on to edit 'Bonnie and Clyde.'

In the '70s, Allen worked on two major projects starring Al Pacino: 'Serpico,' in 1973, and the 1975 film 'Dog Day Afternoon.' 'Afternoon' earned Allen her first of three Academy Award nominations, as well as a BAFTA for Best Film Editing.
