“Greed,for lack of a better word,is good” says Gordon Gekko(Michael Douglas), a ruthless corporate raider for whom nothing is ever enough.

Wall Street explores the conflict between greed and honesty through the eyes of a young and ambitious stock broker Bud Fox(Charlie Sheen), after Gekko takes him under his wing and teaches him the tenets of his voracious brand of capitalism.

The film boasts of endlessly quotable dialogues attributed to Gordon Gekko, and Michael Douglas won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance, cementing Gekko’s status as one of the greatest characters ever created.
