MENAHEM GOLAN

Bold signature, in Hebrew, in black felt tip ink on a 6×4 green index card.  Very fine condition.  A pencil notation on the reverse side indicates that this autograph was obtained in April 1978.  John Verzi collection.  The Israeli producer and director was the patron saint of the “B” action movie, teaming with action stars such as Sylvester Stallone and Chuck Norris to grind out scores of films filled with violence, bore, and nudity.  Some of his films were international hits, but, with an emphasis on quick production and low production values, many were money losers, and Golan’s production companies went bankrupt time and time again, but, like the phoenix, he would somehow arise from the ashes with a new company and start grinding out new films until a few years before his death in 2014.
