Editorial Reviews

Review

Born Maurice Micklewhite in London’s impoverished East End, Michael Caine went on to become one of the world’s most versatile, enduring, and best-loved actors. This new biography looks at the intriguing life and career of the Oscar-winning star.

From the Publisher

With more than 80 films to his name—including “Alfie,” “A Bridge Too Far,” “Educating Rita,” and “The Cider House Rules”—a prestigious knighthood, two Oscars, and countless other awards, Michael Caine is one of the most esteemed actors of his day. Having maintained the balance of critical respect and unswerving popularity, he has established himself as a performer of the highest rank. In this in–depth biography, William Hall, who has known Caine since his earliest days in acting, sketches a picture of a man who has achieved his amazing success through a mixture of innate talent, cool charm, barbed wit, and shrewd intelligence. He also reveals a man who has known his share of difficult times, including the poverty of his earliest years and the pain of discovering his long–lost brother in a psychiatric hospital. Written with Michael Caine’s full cooperation, this is a compelling and affectionate portrait.
