Around 1973, just before he passed, J. Paul Getty was reportedly worth $2 billion, which earned him the title of being the richest man in the world at that time. In addition to being known for helping grow his family’s fortune, J. Paul Getty was also recognized for refusing to pay his grandson’s ransom of $17 million after he was kidnapped by an Italian gang.

After his grandson’s severed ear was sent to a newspaper in Rome, J. Paul Getty paid the gang $2.7 million for his freedom. The story is depicted in the thriller All the Money in the World.
