Adrienne Fazan (May 9, 1906, Los Angeles, California – August 23, 1986, Los Angeles) was an American film editor.

She first started cutting films in 1933. She worked on many MGM films, including The Tell-Tale Heart (1941), Anchors Aweigh (1945), Singin' in the Rain (1952), and Kismet (1955).[1]

Fazan was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Film Editing for An American in Paris in 1951[2], and received the award for Gigi in 1958[3]. Both of these films were directed by Vincente Minnelli, with whom Fazan collaborated on eleven films. She retired in 1970[4], after editing The Cheyenne Social Club.
