10 Films About Nasty Business

Wall Street executives have it tough these days, but Hollywood has rarely gone easy on guys in suits. USA Today lists 10 definitive films about them:

Stagecoach (1939): Like all John Ford movies, this one makes a banker look bad.
Splendor in the Grass (1961): A 1930s investor doesn't just get depressed—he takes it out the window.
American Madness (1932): A bank man takes a rare turn as the nice guy, battling his board over loan policies.
Bonnie and Clyde (1967): What's better than a banker being robbed?
Trading Places (1983): A broker becomes a bum, a bum a broker: Audiences loved the comparison.
Wall Street (1987): A broker starts off nice until his boss shows him greed ain't bad.
