Basis for 'The Secret of my Success'


I believe this movie is the basis or at one of the movies that formed the basis for the 1988 classic, "The Secret of my Success". Only trouble with that movie is that the director did not manage to ask Helen Slater to take off her clothes. In this movie, the actresses did. Fortunately!!

A personable young man without principles who, guided by a less presentable friend, achieves financial and sexual success, in the process exposing the greed and vacuity at the top of the social ladder. Not a new theme, but one enjoyably explored 10 years earlier by the excellent British film: Nothing But The Best?

I think those two are as alike as maybe High Noon and Bonanza.
