Remembering “Lawrence of Arabia” Editor Anne V. Coates, ACE

We sadly just learned of the passing of legendary Editor Anne V. Coates, ACE. We had the pleasure of meeting Anne when she joined us for “Sight, Sound & Story” 2016 with moderator/writer Bobbie O’Steen. Anne was easily one of our most memorable panelists that we have ever had; not only for her extremely long and esteemed career, but because of her outspoken, joyful, and charming personality. She will be missed!

Below are some highlights of Anne talking about her work. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family.
