Overview

Two Oscars and a knighthood honor a lifetime of achievement that has made Michael Caine one of the most famous and respected actors in the world. In recent years, his performances in The Quiet American, Last Orders, Little Voice, and the Oscar–winning Cider House Rules have won him both increasing critical acclaim and a new generation of admirers. Yet the road to stardom was a rocky one. Long before the days of the Harry Palmer spy series or the Cockney Lothario Alfie, success on the big screen was a mere dream for Caine, who spent years doggedly playing minor roles on television, stage, and screen. Writing with wit, honesty, and affection, William Hall charts the highs and lows in this fine actor’s long journey to fame, fortune, and respect.
