The Godfather named best business film

1 Mins

The Godfather garnered 38 per cent of the vote followed by Wall Street (25 per cent) and Jerry McGuire (20 per cent).

Female business managers, however, prefer a different kind of business movie. Working Girl was cited as a top-three film choice (the blokes voted this as one of their least favourite films).

When it came to the entrepreneur respondents would most like to take to see a film, there was a nice surprise. Instead of your Bransons or your Caans, the lovely and super intelligent James Dyson, inventor of the world-famous bagless vacuum cleaner, topped the poll with 47 per cent of the vote.

In Dyson’s wake were Theo Paphitis (17 per cent) and Simon Cowell (15 per cent).

Martin Lyne, Orange UK director of small and medium business, says: "Sir James Dyson is a great example of the ingenuity and creativity driving many British businesses at the moment.”

At the other end of the list, Sir Fred Goodwin was deemed to be the least admired businessman.
