From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Blanche Sewell (October 27, 1898 – February 2, 1949) was an American film editor. She had hoped to work as an actress in Hollywood, but became a negative cutter and then an editor. She was film editor on several notable films for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer including The Wizard of Oz, though she did not live to see the film's spectacular success as a television perennial. She died at age 50. She is interred in Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, California.
