The Secret of My Success (sometimes stylized as The Secret of My Succe$s) is a 1987 American comedy film produced and directed by Herbert Ross, and starring Michael J.
After several unsuccessful attempts to get another job, mostly because he is either overqualified or underqualified and has little experience, Brantley ends up working in the mailroom of the Pemrose Corporation, which is directed by his uncle, Howard Prescott (Richard Jordan), the CEO.
Upon inspecting company reports, Brantley realizes that Howard and most of his fellow "suits" (executives) are making ineffective or detrimental decisions. While handling two jobs (switching between casual wear and business suits in the elevator), Brantley also falls head-over-heels for Christy Wills (Helen Slater), a fellow financial wizard who recently graduated from Harvard. In the end, Brantley and Vera raise enough cash, bonds, and stocks to wrest ownership of the Pemrose Corporation from Howard, and to proceed with a hostile takeover bid of Davenport's Corporation.
The soundtrack was released on LP and cassette tape on April 10, 1987.[1][2] Seven of the 10 tracks were produced and either written or co-written by David Foster, who also scored the film and has three tracks of his own on the album. Not all of the songs featured in the film are included on the soundtrack, or, at least not in the same version. Popular songs "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina & The Waves and "Oh Yeah" by Yello are heard in the film but do not appear on the soundtrack.


Fox) is a recent graduate of Kansas State University who moves to New York City where he has landed a job as a financier.
Pemrose was founded by Howard's father-in-law; Howard received presidency of the company by marrying his boss's daughter, Vera Pemrose (Margaret Whitton). After Brantley notices an empty office in the building due to one of Howard's frequent firings, he uses his access to the mailroom and his understanding of company processes to create the identity of Carlton Whitfield, a new executive.
When Howard asks her to spy on Carlton Whitfield, Christy falls head-over-heels for "Whitfield", not knowing he is actually Brantley. Vera, already contemptuous of Howard for his counter-productive business practices, which were driving her father's empire into the ground, learns that Howard has been cheating on her to boot. The film version of the song The Secret of My Success is slightly different, and also features a mini-instrumental version.
Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times wrote, "The Secret of My Success seems trapped in some kind of time warp, as if the screenplay had been in a drawer since the 1950s and nobody bothered to update it." He concluded "Fox provides a fairly desperate center for the film. It grossed $66,995,000 in the US,[8] becoming the 7th highest grossing film in the United States for the year 1987, outgrossing such films as RoboCop, Predator, Lethal Weapon and Dirty Dancing.

Upon arriving, he discovers that the company for which he is supposed to work has been taken over by a rival corporation. The film version of "I Burn for You" does not feature vocals, whereas the soundtrack version does. Upon seeing Howard arriving, Brantley and Vera realize they are related (albeit not by blood). Howard, unaware that Whitfield and Brantley are one and the same person, suspects "Whitfield" is a spy for corporate raider Donald Davenport (Fred Gwynne).
While security guards escort Howard and his aide, Art Thomas (Gerry Bamman), from the Pemrose Building, Brantley and Christy start planning their future together, personal as well as professional.
The Restless Heart track from the film has a different title (Something I Gotta Do) and different lyrics than the soundtrack version. Brantley then gets changed as fast as he can and leaves the mansion without being seen by Howard.
