He started in the mailroom at Warner Bros. in 1961. His first film as an assistant editor was The Wild Bunch (directed by Sam Peckinpah, 1969).

Cox and Webster were co-editors on The Gauntlet (1977) and on several more of Eastwood's subsequent films. Starting with Sudden Impact (1983), Cox became Eastwood's principal editor. Cox has been quoted as saying that, over their 30-year partnership, Eastwood has re-cut only a single scene that Cox put together. Gary D.
