I’ve seen this many times and with each viewing, it’s more touching. This is a collection of outtakes from Inglourious Basterds (2009) that features actors and others on set looking to the camera and saying “Hi Sally” to Sally Menke, Quentin Tarantino’s longtime editor. 

Knowing that Menke would be sitting in a dark editing suite shaping endless amounts of footage, Tarantino thought this would be a nice way to make her smile and keep her motivated through what can be a solitary process. 

Sadly, in 2010 Sally Menke died, so Inglourious Basterds was their last collaboration.  And beyond the sweet sentiment, this set of outtakes gives us a little window into the intimate working relationship between Menke and Tarantino.

Tarantino has briefly talked about the emotional experience of working on Django Unchained (2012) without her, and said that during the entire editing process, there was a sign put up that read “WWSD” – What Would Sally Do?
