Adrienne Fazan was an award-winning American film editor who first started cutting films in 1933. She worked on many MGM films, including The Tell-Tale Heart (1941), Anchors Aweigh (1945), Singin' in the Rain (1952), and Kismet (1955).[1]


Fazan was born in Germany, to John Fazan and Magdalena Fremdling. She became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1923, and by 1930 was living in Los Angeles and working as a film editor at a studio.


Adrienne Fazan started cutting and editing in films in 1933 and then she went to work at MGM, who were known for hiring the most qualified and talented people. Fazan stayed working as an editor for about five decades, and she then retired in 1970 after a long and successful career.

Fazan worked with many credible people throughout her career. She worked with Dorothy Arzner (who is known for her work on many popular films like The Wild Party)[2] on many of her films where she helped Fazan move from working on short films, to editing popular feature films. Fazan also collaborated with Vincente Minnelli on eleven films, including the Oscar winning film, Gigi.[3]

Fazan was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Film Editing for An American in Paris in 1951,[4] and received the award for Gigi in 1958.[5] Both of these films were directed by Vincente Minnelli, with whom Fazan collaborated on 11 films. She retired in 1970[6] after editing The Cheyenne Social Club.
