About Electric Boogaloo
Subtitled The Wild Untold Story of Cannon Films, director Mark Hartley’s 2014 documentary is a treasure trove for 80’s movie nostalgists. Hartley puts together a remarkable band of over 80 Cannon vets (including Bo Derek, Elliott Gould and Dolph Lundgren) to tell their own stories while further embellishing the already outrageous legends of Cannon founders Menahem Golan and his cousin Yoram Globus. Guru Mark Helfrich even chimes in with his own experiences working at Cannon. Though given a very limited theatrical release, the film was well received and can be found on dvd and streaming services.
