Glickman Inc. was founded by Jacob Glickman and later continued and expanded by Milton and Bill Glickman. With the death of Milton Glickman, Dan's father, in December 1999, Dan and his siblings Norman and Sharon Glickman carried on the family business until it was sold in 2002. Glickman graduated from Wichita Southeast High School in 1962.
In 1993, Jonathan Glickman, who came from the USC's Peter Stark Program, joined Caravan as an intern. When three out of the next four films flopped at the box office, Roth promised to cover I Love Trouble cost overruns pegged at $15 million if it did poorly. It eventually flopped as well.
