“Our Only Crime is That We Love Cinema”: Menahem Golan @ 80

By • May 31st, 2009 • Category: Updates, Writings

Menahem Golan turns 80 today. To celebrate the birthday of this filmmaking giant, the Tel-Aviv Cinematheque Magazine in Israel put out a special tribute issue. I was happy to contribute a piece about the history of Cannon Films, the American production company of Golan’s and his cousin’s, Yoram Globus.

The article is in Hebrew, for English check out two related ones I wrote for Films In Review: An Interview with Golan and a piece titled, How to Stuff a Lemon Popsicle, about the series of international sexploitation comedy hits he co-produced in the 70s-80s.
