American Producer. Chartoff attended Union College and Columbia University Law School before embarking on a film career which spanned six decades. Along with his producing partner, Irwin Winkler, the pair won 1976's Best Picture Academy Award for 'Rocky'. Between 1967 and 1985, Chartoff-Winkler Productions turned out more than 25 features, including 'Point Blank' (1967), 'They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?' (1969), 'The Strawberry Statement' (1970), 'Believe in Me' (1971), 'The Mechanic' (1972), 'The Gambler' (1974), 'Nickelodeon' (1976), 'New York, New York' (1977), 'Comes a Horseman' (1978) and 'True Confessions' (1981).
