Amen! Could not have been said better.

A cut is a cut & a dissolve is a disolve, and not just anybody with a system is a pro.

So let me get this straight, editing is more then knowing how the software works. This could change everything, wait it already has.
Thanks for the post Mark, it was refreshing to see when editing was still considered an art.

Was that a Moviola? Looked more like a KEM to me. But Orson's point was well made. I particularly enjoyed his musical analogy as one of my editing inspirations is Levon Helm, drummer of 'The Band', and imho, one of the greatest drummers ever.
Levon put it something like this: you can always lay down a 4/4 beat to any song and it'll be OK. But if you tweak the rhythms, change the beats a bit, you can make it something special. And so it is with picture cutting... Master, 2-S then CU's? Why not? Keeps the networks happy. But take the time to dig deeper, bring out those subtle touches in performance, and a scene can sing.
I often think of editors as the drummers of the movie biz, about as well appreciated but just as vital.
