In the McDonald's bio-pic THE FOUNDER, Michael Keaton plays Ray Kroc, a struggling businessman who knew how to run with a good idea when he saw it...even if it wasn't his. President Calvin Coolidge once said "The business of America is business" here are ten films that show the dark side of that axiom.
Written by Robert Siegel (BIG FAN), THE FOUNDER is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers' speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
