Mike Cohen (born January 16, 1917, died in the Philippines, March 19, 1988) was an American expatriate actor living in the Philippines, who had supporting roles in a number of low-budget, Z-movie Filipino actioners from the late 70's to the 80's. He was a retired US Army officer (Lt.Colonel) who ran a mall in Manila and acted in films as a hobby. Cohen appeared in the midget-exploitation vehicle For Y'ur Height Only (1979) starring Weng Weng, in Intrusion Cambodia AKA Rescue Team (1981) (directed by John Gale (director) (Jun Gallardo) and starring Richard Harrison and a cast of Filipino exploitation veterans such as Mike Monty, James Gaines, Romano Kristoff and Ronnie Patterson, and other films of similar quality. A short, overweight, grey-haired and often goateed man, he was usually cast as military/government men and gangsters. Unlike many other expat actors working in low-quality films in the Philippines during the 80's such as Gaines or Kristoff, Cohen did not work almost exclusively for John Gale or Teddy Page (Teddy Chiu).

“Parents must begin to discover their children as individuals of developing tastes and views and so help them be, and see, themselves as thinking, feeling people. It is far too easy for a middle-years child to absorb an over-simplified picture of himself as a sloppy, unreliable, careless, irresponsible, lazy creature and not much morean attitude toward himself he will carry far beyond these years.”
—Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)
