“It’s not a question of enough, pal. It’s a zero-sum game: somebody wins, somebody loses. Money itself isn’t lost or made, it’s simply, uh, transferred from one perception to another. Like magic.”

“Greed is Good !”…One of the most quoted lines ever from any movie, from a film that perfectly captured the mood and culture of its time. The blatant unbridled capitalism of late 80’s excess has never been better portrayed with both Michael Douglas (Gordon Gecko – one of the truly iconic anti-heroes ever created) and Charlie Sheen (bud Fox)  being perfect try cast as the Wall Street high flyers.  From first year of release, this original 1987 UK movie poster for “Wall Street” features great imagery of the three main stars. Originally folded (as issued) this beautiful example displays and presents to excellent effect with minimal handling wear. The black background is dark and unfaded with the colours of the characters and the city lights bright & vibrant. A nice find and a hugely collectable piece of original 1980’s cinema memorabilia…“Every Dream Has A Price.”

Trivia: Gordon Gekko’s “Greed is good” speech was inspired by Ivan Boesky‘s speech at the University of California’s commencement ceremony in 1986. Boesky was a Wall Street arbitrageur who paid a $100 million penalty to the SEC later that year to settle insider trading charges. In his speech, Boesky said “Greed is all right, by the way. I want you to know that. I think greed is healthy. You can be greedy and still feel good about yourself.”
