Harvey is a film producer and the founder of the Miramax company, until he was dismissed in 2017 after being accused of sexual abuse. Harvey was raised in a Jewish family in Queens in New York City, alongside his younger brother Bob, by their parents Max, a diamond cutter, and Miriam who was a housewife. He studied at John Bowne High School and then enrolled at the University at Buffalo and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 1974. While still at college, Harvey and his brother Bob together with Corky Burger began producing rock concerts through their company, Harvey & Corky Productions.
By the end of the ‘70s, Harvey and Bob had become keen on entering the film industry, and launched the Miramax film distribution company. The company became famous in the ‘80s after they released “The Secret Policeman’s Other Ball” movie in May 1982 which was their first major success. Their documentary movie “The Thin Blue Line” released in 1988 further increased the company’s popularity and they went on to release additional movies including “Sex, Lies, and Videotape”, “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover”, and “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” all in 1989.
In 1993, Harvey and Bob were offered $80 million for the company by Disney – the brothers accepted the offer, but Henry demanded to stay head of the company. In 1994, Miramax released Quentin Tarantino’s movie entitled “Pulp Fiction” which is considered to be one of the greatest movies of all time – their new successes came with movies such as “The English Patient” and “Good Will Hunting” in 1997 and “Shakespeare in Love” in 1998.

Harvey has helped numerous charity organizations, and donated money to fight poverty, help research Aids, and fight juvenile diabetes among other things. He was a member of the Board of the Robin Hood Foundation, and has been fighting to make the gun laws stricter in the US. In October 2017, several New York newspapers wrote about numerous women accusing Harvey of sexual assault.
After the first few women accused him, more than ten others joined in, leading to Harvey being fired from his own company – his second wife, Georgina Chapman whom he married in 2007, left him after the accusations were made public. On 25 May 2018, Harvey was arrested by the New York police on charges of ‘rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct for incidents involving two separate women’ – he was released on $1 million bail, has to wear an ankle monitor, and isn’t allowed to travel anywhere further than New York and Connecticut.
