Leading feature editor who has worked on all of director Rob Reiner's films since his debut, "This Is Spinal Tap" (1984). As Reiner's career has spanned a variety of genres, Leighton has demonstrated a knack for constructing many kinds of films. He has also worked on the Ron Shelton films, "Bull Durham" (1988) and "Blaze" (1989). Leighton earned his first Oscar nomination for his work on the slickly made but old-fashioned courtroom drama "A Few Good Men (1992)."
