During his 40-year career, the author became one of the industrys most respected television editors, receiving seven Emmy nominations and winning four of the coveted awards. But it was as a master of the jump cut--an editing style in which a sudden cut from one shot to another is made without a fadeout--that he is most remembered, and the term became his nickname. Mr. Schneider worked on many of Bob Hopes shows over the years, but it was for Laugh-In that he fully developed his editing style. This is a behind-the-scenes look at the development of television, from the days when some editing was done with a razor blade and tape to the electronic editing of today. Along the way, Mr. Schneider remembers the stars he worked with, from Gene Kelly to Redd Foxx.
