Russell Mulcahy

Russell Mulcahy (born January 1, 1953) is a film director, born in Melbourne, Australia. His career began with making music videos.

The videos he directed include:

In 1986, he directed the classic cult movie Highlander, starring Christophe Lambert and featuring music from Queen. He later directed the sequel, Highlander II: The Quickening, but disowned it after the producers interefered with production. Reportedly he wanted to have his credit changed to Alan Smithee, but it was in his contract that he could not publicly attack the film (which he would be effectively doing by having himself credited as Alan Smithee), and the producers told him that they would take legal action against him if he had his credit changed. Instead, he left the premiere after the film started.
