Just a quick note to mark the passing of Andy Vanja yesterday.A man who when you look back at the eighties and nineties really did make a mark on all our lives without us knowing it . After fleeing Communist Hungary in 1956 at the age of 12 , he studied Cinematography at UCLA , Vanja's first major success was as a wig maker , by the time he had sold his company in 1973 he employed 3000 people he formed Carolco with Mario Kassar , starting out in a small office with their wives as secretaries , they became one of the most successful teams of the eighties producing The Changeling, Escape to Victory, First Blood , Rambo First Blood Part II, Angel Heart, Rambo III, Deep Star Six , Jacobs Ladder and Total Recall.
In 1989 Vanja Sold his share of Carolco and formed Cinergi where he went on to produce films such as Tombstone , Die Hard with a Vengance, Judge Dredd, The 13th Warrior ,Terminator 3, Terminator Salvation and Terminator the Sarah Connor chronicles. In 2011 Vanja returned to Hungary where he became an "adviser" to the current government ending up owning the TV2 group (Hungarys Second channel)

Andy Vanja was 74
