Biography

Little is known about Loring's early life, although she later told journalists she broke away from her parents when she was just 13.[2] Born in Denver, Loring decided when she was 16 that she wanted to become a director.[3][4]

She was also an accomplished violinist, and it was this talent that took her to New York City.[2] While in NYC, she performed in an orchestra and also took on stage roles.[4][5] She'd later appear as an actress in a number of silent films. After that, she secured a position as a stenographer for Al Kaufman; she then moved onto a script-girl position.[4]

Before joining Famous Players-Lasky's editing staff in 1926, she edited movie trailers. In the early 1930s, she moved to RKO, where she edited films and worked as Pandro S. Berman's right-hand woman, sometimes working as an assistant director.[6] She was good friends with Katharine Hepburn and edited many of Hepburn's films.[7][8]
