Tarantino has spoken about the emotional experience of working on 'Django' without Sally by his side, and recently told The Huffington Post that during the entire editing process on his latest there was a sign put up that read “WWSD” – What Would Sally Do? Well now comes another insight into one of the key relationships that arguably helped define the visual style of one of the world’s most unique filmmakers, with a couple of videos surfacing that show how Tarantino would keep Menke’s spirits high during the often laborious editing process.
As you can see in the videos below, Tarantino liked to throw a number of shout-outs to Menke during the filming process by simply turning to the camera and quipping “Hello, Sally!” The clips are from "Inglorious Basterds" and “Death Proof,” and show that Tarantino was also able to get his cast members in on the gag. It's easy to imagine her face lighting up in the editing bay as the hellos pop up at the most unlikely moments. The videos still offer a great insight into the working relationship of two great collaborators, and now serve as a touching tribute to a great cinematic talent. Watch below. [Movies]
