Gail Werbin was an American film editor and football player for the Los Angeles Dandelions of the short-lived National Women's Football League.


Werbin was born in 1946, daughter of Harry Werbin, a distance runner.[1] During high school and college, she competed in swimming events for the Kansas City Jewish Community Center,[1] and then for Kansas City Athletic Club[1] and the University of Michigan.[1] In 1965, she competed in the 7th Maccabiah Games in Israel, in the 200 meter breaststroke, 400 meter medley relay, and high jump events.[1] A 1967 graduate of the University of Michigan who went on to get a master's degree in filmmaking at the University of Southern California, Werbin played for the professional Los Angeles Dandelions women's football team while editing films like Rock 'n' Roll High School, On the Run,[2] and J-Men Forever.[3] Her work on the latter film, a collage film that edits together scenes from numerous Republic Pictures' serials,[4] was singled out for praise by Leonard Maltin in his Movie Guide.[5]

She held a fellowship at the American Film Institute.[6] Her 27-minute short film, Sylvia for the Lack of Love, screened at the 1977 Filmvid event in Los Angeles.[7][8]
