3. Schindler’s List (1993)
German industrialist Oskar Schindler and his Jewish accountant Itzhak Stern saved over a thousand Jews from the Nazis during the Second World War. The lists that the two men drew up prevented thousands from being shipped to concentration camps, instead the authorities were told they were essential for a new factory Schindler was building – which he wasn’t.
IMDb: Schindler’s List (1993)
4. Wall Street (1987)
The film that with a single line encapsulated an entire decade – ‘greed is good’. Spoken by Gordon Gecko, the ‘bad guy’ investor for whom there is never enough wealth, he represented all that was selfish and excessive about the 1980s. Strangely, despite being a warning against the ugliness of greed, the film was a boost for Wall Street recruitment.
IMDb: Wall Street (1987)
5. The Untouchables (1987)
As part of a team of FBI agents, accountant Oscar Wallace goes after Al Capone with the mafia boss’s questionable accounts in one hand and a shotgun in the other. The danger-loving bookkeeper may have looked a little nerdy, but it was his idea to go after Capone on tax evasion that eventually put him behind bars – so it would seem the number is mightier than the sword!
IMDb : The Untouchables (1987)
