  • Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus were two movie-obsessed cousins from Israel who became Hollywood’s ultimate gate-crashers. Following their own skewed version of the Great American Dream, they bought an already low-rent brand – Cannon Films – and ratcheted up its production to become so synonymous with schlock that the very sight of its iconic logo made audiences boo throughout the 1980s. And yet who could have foreseen how close they came to nearly taking over Hollywood and the UK film industry?

Electric Boogaloo
  • Electric Boogaloo (2014)
  • Documentary,
  • Dokumentarfilm über die israelischen Produzenten Menahem Golan und Yoram Globus, deren Passion für das Kino zu der Gründung ihres eigenen Studios, The Cannon Group, führte. Die beiden sind insbesondere für ihre Produktion von B-Movies bekannt, für die sie jedoch auch bekannte Stars wie Sean Connery, Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren und Charles Bronson gewinnen konnten. Indem sie jedes angesagte Genre und Franchise schnell und kostengünstig durch ihre Filme verwerteten, realisierten sie vor allem in den 80ern eine Vielzahl von Filmen wie "Death Wish II" bis "Death Wish VI" mit Charles Bronson oder die zwei "Delta Force"-Filme mit Dolph Lundgren. Auch frühe Comic-Filme wie "Masters of the Universe", "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" oder "Captain America" wurden von Golan und Globus produziert.
