    Menahem Golan (May 31, 1929-August 8, 2014)
    Birth name is Menahem Globus
    Yoram Globus (1941- )
    Began partnership in Israel (1963)
    Bought Cannon Films (1979)
    Produced over 200 films together
    Films include 'Death Wish 2-4,' 'Missing in Action (1984),' 'Breakin' (1984),' 'American Ninja (1985),' 'Invasion U.S.A. (1985),' 'Cobra (1986),' 'The Delta Force (1986),' 'Over the Top (1987),' 'Superman IV (1987),' 'Masters of the Universe (1987),' 'Barfly (1987)' and 'Cyborg (1989)'
    Three of their biggest stars were Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone and Michael Dudikoff.
    Most of their movies are low-budget and poorly-written flops.
    They focused primarily on quantity and profit over quality.
    They promoted and sold the rights to their movies long before most of them were completed.
    Whenever asked how his movies would do at the box office, Golan always said: 'Hundred million dollars.'
    They feuded with each other after Cannon went bankrupt (1989).
    When they reunited under a new company, Golan said: 'After nine years apart we agreed both together we're stronger, wiser and we can serve the industry better' (1997).
    Their new company produced several flops and Golan was fired.
    Golan was once described as the 'king of the crap movie and bounced check.'
    They served in the Israeli air force.
    Two of their Israeli movies received Best Foreign Film Oscar nominations (1965, 1978).
    Their productions ranged from commercial action to art house and Shakespearean films.
    They bought and financed scripts that were rejected by other studios.
    Charles Bronson acted in several of their productions.
    They have a cult following of action, ninja and B-movie fans.
    Both worked simultaneously in the Israeli and American film industries.
    Globus said: 'Our only crime is that we love cinema. You don't see us at the Polo Lounge, on the tennis court or at parties. You see us at the office seven days a week.'
