Interesting Facts

1 Co-founder of Israeli film production company Noah Films.
2 Started US production company 21st Century Pictures.
3 Purchased Britain's Elstree Studios. [1986]
4 Purchased UK production company Thorn-EMI Screen Entertainment. [1986]
5 He grew up in Tiberius, a city located in northern Israel, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee.
6 Along with his cousin, Yoram Globus, bought the Cannon Group production company in 1979 and ran it throughout the 1980s. Because of their fast, low-budget style of filmmaking, they earned the nickname the Go-Go Boys.


1 For me a director is a director, he dictates the piece, creates it and I need to help him. The producer brings together all the elements that make it possible for the director to make the film - develop the script, hire the actors, hire the director and then work together with him. The director is the architect and the producer is the engineer.
2 I make films, love them, sometimes I also do an excellent job. I don't consider myself an Ingmar Bergman, I don't make "message" films. I make them for the audience in the theater who doesn't get bored, laughs at a comedy, cries at a tragedy, with a lot of emotion. I'm hoping that there's still a future.
3 The film business is the only business where a negative is a positive.
4 If you make an American film with a beginning, a middle and an end, with a budget of less than five million dollars, you must be an idiot to lose money.
