Menahem Golan - Rotten Tomatoes

Menahem Golan



As one of the leaders in Israeli cinema, filmmaker/producer Menahem Golan collaborated with his cousin Yoram Globus from the early '60s to produce over 150 movies. He spent many years directing theatrical productions in Israel before coming to the U.S. to study film in New York and later became a protegé of director Roger Corman. When Golan returned to his homeland, he and Globus worked together to create Israel's film industry with prestigious films such as Sallah Shabati (1964). In 1979, Golan and Globus took over the Cannon group in Hollywood where for the next 10 years they produced quality independent films such as Love Streams (1984) and Barfly (1987). In 1989, the two producers went their separate ways with Globus becoming the head of Pathe International, and Golan moving to take over the 21st Century Film Corporation. He continued to produce, direct and write films until his death in 2014, at age 85.
