About
About this interview

In his nearly five-and-a-half-hour Archive interview, Dann Cahn (1923-2012) talks about growing up in 1920's and '30's Hollywood and explains how he got his start in the entertainment industry as an assistant editor on several motion pictures. His first jobs for the small screen came in 1949, on the critically acclaimed programs Your Show Time and Lucky Strike Showtime. Mr. Cahn discusses working at Desilu on I Love Lucy, Our Miss Brooks, The Untouchables, and The Loretta Young Show  and shares his thoughts on Desilu's famed Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz and Jess Oppenheimer. Cahn also describes editing several other hit television shows including The Beverly Hillbillies, Police Woman, and Remington Steele. He recounts working at Glenn Larson Productions as head of Post Production, and speaks to the importance of one particularly prolific producer who he believes was the ideal collaborator in the editing room. Michael Rosen conducted the interview on August 18, 1999 in Cahn's home in Brentwood, CA.

"There's something about handling the film that was part of it - part of the system. But it's gone, and it won't come back. The feel, the smell of the film. The solitude. It was a fabulous way to edit. I loved it."
