During his 40-year career, the author became one of the industry's 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 fade-out -- that he is most remembered, and the term became his nickname. 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.
