My top pick: tough choice but decided it's Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Humphrey Bogart 1948.

How could nobody have mentioned "Wall Street";
Gordon Gecko: "The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you very much."
