Biographical

Reginald Beck (5 February 1902 – 12 July 1992) was a British film editor with forty-nine credits from 1932 to 1985. He is noted primarily for films done with Lawrence Olivier in the 1940s and with Joseph Losey in the 1960s and 1970s.

Beck helped to shape films as diverse as Olivier's "Henry V" (1944) and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "Despair" (1978). He worked with American expatriate director Joseph Losey on 12 of his British films, including "Accident" (1967) and "The Go-Between" (1971).
