There is of course another, perhaps lesser known film that should also be required viewing for potential leaders of commerce and industry.
Bearing in mind scandals like Enron, amongst others, The Million Pound Note should be viewed by everyone.
An impoverished American sailor is fortunate enough to be passing the house of two rich gentlemen who have conceived the crazy idea of distributing a note worth one million pounds. The sailor finds that whenever he tries to use the note to buy something, people treat him as if he is a King and let him have whatever he likes for free. The note never gets broken and the sailor acquires all he wants without spending anything. Without going into details, it all ends rather badly.

Pretty relevant even today, with all these houses of cards that are worth fortunes but built on nothing except hot air and promises that are ultimately worthless.
Merry christmas Jane!
