David Bishop's book, Starring Michael Caine covers every angle of Caine’s career. From the era-defining, iconic cockneys of Alfie and The Italian Job, to the soul-searching performance in Educating Rita. En route we pass through Africa and the action of Zulu to Harry Palmer’s convoluted world of espionage in The Ipcress File (and its sequels). From the gangster classic Get Carter to broad comedy in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. There are too many to mention, Caine has seen it all, done it all, and collected the plaudits for almost fifty years of quality performances.
Including much new research on Caine’s early career, and a balanced and sharp appraisal of the star’s sometimes questionable choice of roles, Starring Michael Caine is the book every Michael Caine fan has been waiting for. Featuring many previously unpublished stills, the book also includes complete details of every single Caine screen performance.
