He served as a soldier during World War II. After that, he resumed work in 1955, and began a long, fruitful collaboration with producer-director Roger Corman, which led to a busy career in low-budget independent filmmaking. Sinclair edited Corman's directorial debut, Swamp Women, and went on to work on at least a dozen of Corman's other films including Day the World Ended, The Intruder, Thunder Alley, The Raven and The Trip. He also edited a number of films by another low-rent auteur with big ideas, Bert I. Gordon: The Amazing Colossal Man, Invasion of the Saucer Men, War of the Colossal Beast, Attack of the Puppet People, and The Spider.
