* ''Film/SchindlersList'': Oskar Schindler is a [[{{Greed}} greedy]] [[ReallyGetsAround womanizer]] [[OnlyInItForTheMoney who has little issue using German racial prejudice against the jews to make a quick buck]] by using them as cheap labor outsourced from German concentration camps. [[TheCharmer He's charming]] but also a spendthrift who doesn't have a mind for business, (he flat out admits the only reason he's making money know is that what with profiteering off the war, it's essentially impossible not to) and leaves the management of his enamelware factory to his more shrewd-minded jewish accountant Itzhak Stern, becoming fabulously wealthy. The jews begin to look up to Schindler, who treats them humanely and is [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure the only authority figure around]] who isn't TheSociopath. The camp is eventually shut down, and Schindler plans on leaving since he already has more money than he could ever spend in a lifetime. But the jews who work in his factory are soon to be deported to Auschwitz, where they will certainly be massacred. The next day, Schindler has Stern type up the titular 'list' with the names of all his workers on it, telling him that he is relocating them all to a munitions factory he's building in his hometown. Itzhak openly wonders how Schindler convinced Commandant Goeth to let them go... and then it dawns on him that Schindler has spent '''everything he has''' buying them from him. Stern calls the list an 'absolute good,' awed by such an act of pure, unadulterated love and compassion.
