The Wall Street Movie of the 1940's: Ruthless

Are you interested in watching a movie about a ruthless, greedy, immoral Wall Street tycoon? No, I'm not talking about the movie Wall Street or Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. I'm referring to a movie from the 1940's. Yes, they had greedy financiers back in those days also.

The movie, which is in the film noir style, is called Ruthless. It is about a man who had a poor abusive home life as a child. He is taken in by a wealthy family, who helps him get a start in life and eventually paying for his college education.

Then things change while he is in college. His greed makes him use women and friends to make money. The trouble begins.

The movie is rated 6.9 out of 10 by IMDB. I found it an interesting an enjoyable movie, but maybe that's because I'm into film noir.
