Wall Street (1929)

Roller McCray, a former steelworker who built a business empire through ruthless  tactics, drives a competitor to suicide. His widow wants to take revenge by joining forces with his former business partner to destroy him and his empire. Efficiently directed by Roy William Neill, Wall Street was an early example of a synchronous sound film from Columbia, but it is still topical today.
