Michael Douglas whips up frenzy at Cannes
Hollywood star Michael Douglas flew in to Cannes on Thursday, drawing mobs of fans outside his hotel in hopes of a glimpse of the Oscar-winning actor.
Douglas is to step up the Cannes red carpet on Friday for the release of Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" where he reprises his 1987 role as corporate raider Gordon Gekko getting out of jail and warning Wall Street of impending financial disaster.
Gekko was the character who coined the phrase "Greed is good" back in the avaricious 1980s, but he has now seen the error of his ways.
