Early life[edit]

A blue plaque erected in 2003 marks Caine's birthplace at St Olave's Hospital

Michael Caine
Michael Caine
was born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite Jr. on 14 March 1933 in St Olave's Hospital in Rotherhithe, London.[5][6][7] His father, Maurice Joseph Micklewhite Sr., was a fish market porter, while his mother, Ellen Frances Marie Burchell, was a cook and charwoman.[8] His father had Irish ancestry,[9][10] and was a Catholic, though the actor was brought up in his mother's Protestant religion.[11] Caine had an elder maternal half-brother named David William Burchell and a younger full brother, Stanley Micklewhite. He grew up in Southwark, London, and during the Second World War, he was evacuated to North Runcton
North Runcton
near King's Lynn
King's Lynn
in Norfolk.[12] After the war, his father was demobilised, and the family were rehoused by the council in Marshall Gardens at the Elephant and Castle
Elephant and Castle
in a prefabricated house made in Canada,[13] as much of London's housing stock had been damaged during the Blitz in 1940–1941:

“ The prefabs, as they were known, were intended to be temporary homes while London was reconstructed, but we ended up living there for eighteen years and for us, after a cramped flat with an outside toilet, it was luxury.[14] ”

In 1944, he passed his eleven-plus exam, winning a scholarship to Hackney Downs School (formerly The Grocers' Company's School).[15] After a year there he moved to Wilson's Grammar School in Camberwell (now Wilson's School
Wilson's School
in Wallington, London), which he left at sixteen after gaining a School Certificate in six subjects. He then worked briefly as a filing clerk and messenger for a film company in Victoria Street and film producer Jay Lewis in Wardour Street.[16] From 28 April 1952, when he was called up to do his national service until 1954, he served in the British Army's Royal Fusiliers, first at the BAOR HQ in Iserlohn, Germany, and then on active service during the Korean War. He had gone into Korea feeling sympathetic to communism, coming as he did from a poor family, but the experience left him permanently repelled.[17] He experienced a situation where he knew he was going to die, the memory of which stayed with him and formed his character; he later said, "The rest of my life I have lived every bloody moment from the moment I wake up until the time I go to sleep."[18] Caine would like to see the return of national service to help combat youth violence, stating: "I'm just saying, put them in the Army for six months. You're there to learn how to defend your country. You belong to the country. Then when you come out, you have a sense of belonging rather than a sense of violence".[19] Career[edit] 1950s[edit] Caine began his acting career at the age of 20 in Horsham, Sussex, when he responded to an advertisement in The Stage for an assistant stage manager who would also perform small walk-on parts for the Horsham-based Westminster Repertory Company who were performing at the Carfax Electric Theatre.[20] Adopting the stage name "Michael White", in July 1953 he was cast as the drunkard Hindley in the Company's production of Wuthering Heights.[21] He moved to the Lowestoft Repertory Company in Suffolk
Suffolk
for a year when he was 21. It was here that he met his first wife.[22] He has described the first nine years of his career as "really, really brutal."[23] Whilst in Lowestoft
Lowestoft
rep at the Arcadia Theatre (with Jackson Stanley's 'Standard Players') he appeared in nine plays. When his career took him to London in 1954 after his provincial apprenticeship, his agent informed him that there was already a Michael White performing as an actor in London and that he had to come up with a new name immediately. Speaking to his agent from a telephone booth in Leicester Square, London, he looked around for inspiration, noted that The Caine Mutiny was being shown at the Odeon Cinema
Odeon Cinema
in 1954, and decided to change his name to "Michael Caine". He joked on television in 1987 that, had a tree partly blocking his view been a few feet to the left, he might have been called "Michael Mutiny". ( Humphrey Bogart
Humphrey Bogart
was his "screen idol" and he would later play the part originally intended for Bogart in John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King.[24]) He also later joked in interviews that had he looked the other way, he would have ended up as "Michael One Hundred and One Dalmatians".[25] In 1959, he was Peter O'Toole's understudy in Lindsay Anderson's West End staging of Willis Hall's The Long and the Short and the Tall. He took over the role when O'Toole left to make Lawrence of Arabia and went on to a four-month tour of Britain and Ireland. Michael Caine's first film role was as one of the privates in George Baker's platoon in the 1956 film A Hill in Korea. The stars of the film were George Baker, Stanley Baker, Harry Andrews
Harry Andrews
and Michael Medwin, with Stephen Boyd
Stephen Boyd
and Ronald Lewis, and Robert Shaw also had a small part. He appeared regularly on television in small roles. His first credited role on the BBC
BBC
was 'Boudousse' in the Jean Anouilh
Jean Anouilh
play The Lark in 1956. Other parts included three roles in Dixon of Dock Green in 1957, 1958 and 1959, prisoner-of-war series Escape (1957), crime/thriller drama Mister Charlesworth, and a court orderly in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial (1958). 1960s[edit]

Caine continued to appear on television, in serials The Golden Girl and No Wreath for the General, but was then cast in the play The Compartment, written by Johnny Speight, a two-hander also starring Frank Finlay. This was followed by main roles in other plays including the character Tosh in Somewhere for the Night, a Sunday-Night Play written by Bill Naughton
Bill Naughton
televised on Sunday 3 December 1961, another two-hander by Johnny Speight, The Playmates, and two editions of BBC plays strand First Night, Funny Noises with Their Mouths and The Way with Reggie (both 1963). He also acted in radio plays, including Bill Naughton's Looking for Frankie on the BBC Home Service (1963) and Ping Pong on the BBC
BBC
Third Programme (1964). A big break came for Caine when he was cast as Meff in James Saunders' Cockney
Cockney
comedy Next Time I'll Sing To You, when this play was presented at the New Arts Theatre in London on 23 January 1963.[26] Scenes from the play's performance were featured in the April 1963 issue of Theatre World magazine.[27] When this play moved to the Criterion in Piccadilly
Piccadilly
with Michael Codron directing, he was visited backstage by Stanley Baker, one of the four stars in Caine's first film, A Hill in Korea, who told him about the part of a Cockney
Cockney
private in his upcoming film Zulu, a film Baker was producing and starring in. Baker told Caine to meet the director, Cy Endfield, who informed him that he already had given the part to James Booth, a fellow Cockney
Cockney
who was Caine's friend, because he "looked more Cockney" than Caine did. Endfield then told the 6'2" Caine that he did not look like a Cockney
Cockney
but like an officer, and offered him a screen test for the role of a snobbish, upper class officer after Caine assured him that he could do a posh accent. Caine believes Endfield offered him, a Cockney, the role of an aristocrat because, being American, he did not have the endemic British class-prejudice. Though he tested poorly, Endfield gave him the part that would make him a film star.[28] Location shooting for Zulu took place in Natal, South Africa, for 14 weeks in 1963.[29][30][31] According to his 2011 autobiography The Elephant to Hollywood, Caine had been signed to a seven-year contract by Joseph E. Levine, whose Embassy Films was distributing Zulu. After the return of the cast to England and the completion of the film, Levine released him from the contract, telling him, "I know you're not, but you gotta face the fact that you look like a queer on screen." Levine gave his contract to his Zulu co-star James Booth.[32]

Subsequently, Caine's agent got him cast in the BBC
BBC
production Hamlet at Elsinore (1964) as Horatio, in support of Christopher Plummer's Hamlet. Horatio was the only classical role which Caine, who had never received dramatic training, would ever play. Caine wrote, "...I decided that if my on-screen appearance was going to be an issue, then I would use it to bring out all Horatio's ambiguous sexuality."[33] Caine's roles as effete-seeming aristocrats were to contrast with his next projects, in which he was to become notable for using a regional accent, rather than the Received Pronunciation
Received Pronunciation
then considered proper for film actors. At the time, Caine's working class Cockney, just as with The Beatles' Liverpudlian
Liverpudlian
accents, stood out to American and British audiences alike. Zulu was closely followed by two of his best-known roles: the spy Harry Palmer
Harry Palmer
in The Ipcress File
File
(1965), and the womanising title character in Alfie (1966). He went on to play Palmer in a further four films, Funeral in Berlin (1966), Billion Dollar Brain (1967), Bullet to Beijing
Bullet to Beijing
(1995) and Midnight in Saint Petersburg (1995). Caine made his first film in Hollywood in 1966, after an invitation from Shirley MacLaine
Shirley MacLaine
to play opposite her in Gambit. During the first two weeks, whilst staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel, he met long-term friends John Wayne
John Wayne
and agent "Swifty" Lazar.[34] Caine starred in the 1969 comedy caper film The Italian Job as the leader of a cockney criminal gang released from prison with the intention of doing a "big job" in Italy to steal gold bullion from an armoured security truck. The line "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" by Caine was voted favourite film one-liner in a 2003 poll of 1,000 film fans.[35] 1970s[edit]

After working on The Italian Job
The Italian Job
with Noël Coward, and a solid role as RAF fighter pilot squadron leader Canfield in the all-star cast of Battle of Britain (both 1969), Caine played the lead in Get Carter (1971), a British gangster film. Caine was busy with successes including Sleuth (1972) opposite Laurence Olivier, and John Huston's The Man Who Would Be King (1975) co-starring Sean Connery

which received widespread acclaim.[36] The Times
The Times
applauded the "lovely double act of Caine and Connery, clowning to their doom", while Huston paid tribute to Caine's improvisation as an actor: "Michael is one of the most intelligent men among the artists I've known. I don't particularly care to throw the ball to an actor and let him improvise, but with Michael it's different. I just let him get on with it."[36] In 1976 he appeared in the screen adaptation by Tom Mankiewicz

Winston Churchill, alongside co-stars Donald Sutherland, Robert Duvall, Jenny Agutter and Donald Pleasence. Subsequently, in 1978, he starred in The Silver Bears, an adaptation of Paul Erdman's (1974) novel of the same name. Caine also was part of an all-star cast in A Bridge Too Far (1977). 1980s[edit]

Caine in 1979

At the end of the 1970s his choice of roles was frequently criticised—something to which he has referred with self-deprecating comments about taking parts strictly for the money. Caine then averaged two films a year, but these included such failures as the BAFTA-nominated The Magus (1968), the Academy Award-nominated The Swarm (1978), Ashanti (1979) (which he claimed were his worst three films), Beyond the Poseidon Adventure
Beyond the Poseidon Adventure
(1979), The Island (1980), The Hand (1981) and a reunion with his Sleuth co-star Laurence Olivier
Laurence Olivier
in The Jigsaw Man (1982). Caine's acclaimed roles during the 1980s included a BAFTA-winning turn in Educating Rita (1983) in which he co-starred with Julie Walters, an Oscar-winning performance in Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), and a Golden Globe-nominated one in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) co-starring Steve Martin.[37] He continued to appear in poorly received films such as Blame It on Rio, the Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais comedy Water, the critical-commercial flop Jaws: The Revenge (1987) (about which he had mixed feelings concerning the production and the final cut), and Bullseye! (1990). On Jaws: The Revenge, Caine said "I have never seen the film, but by all accounts it was terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific."[38][39] His other successful films (critically or financially) were the 1978 Academy Award-winning California Suite, the 1980 Golden Globe-nominated slasher film Dressed to Kill, the 1981 war film Escape to Victory featuring Sylvester Stallone
Sylvester Stallone
and footballers from the 1960s and 1970s, including Pelé

and Bobby Moore, the 1982 film Deathtrap, and the 1986 Academy Award-nominated Mona Lisa. In 1987, Caine narrated Hero, the official film of the 1986 FIFA World Cup.[40] He also starred in Without a Clue, portraying Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes
and also acted as Chief Insp. Frederick Abberline in the 1988 TV series Jack the Ripper. 1990s[edit] In the 1990s, he found good parts harder to come by. He played the mysterious bartender Mike in Mr. Destiny
Mr. Destiny
in 1990. A high point came when he played Ebenezer Scrooge
Ebenezer Scrooge
in the critically acclaimed The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992). He played the beleaguered stage director Lloyd Fellowes in the film adaptation of Noises Off (1992). He also played a villain in the Steven Seagal
Steven Seagal
film On Deadly Ground
On Deadly Ground
(1994). He was in two straight to video Harry Palmer

sequels and a few television films. However, Caine's reputation as a pop icon was still intact, thanks to his roles in films such as The Italian Job

and Get Carter. His performance in Little Voice (1998) was seen as something of a return to form, and won him a Golden Globe
Golden Globe
Award. Better parts followed, including The Cider House Rules (1999), for which he won his second Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Supporting Actor.[41] 2000s[edit]

In the 2000s, Caine appeared in Miss Congeniality (2000), Last Orders (2001), The Quiet American (2002), for which he was Oscar-nominated, and others. Several of Caine's classic films have been remade, including The Italian Job, Get Carter, Alfie and Sleuth. In the 2007 remake of Sleuth, Caine took over the role Laurence Olivier
Laurence Olivier
played in the 1972 version and Jude Law
Jude Law
played Caine's original role. Caine is one of the few actors to have played a starring role in two different versions of the same film. In an interview with CNN, Law spoke of his admiration for Caine: "I learned so much just from watching how he monitored his performance, and also how little he has to do. He's a master technician and sometimes he was doing stuff I didn't see, I couldn't register. I'd go back and watch it on the monitor, it was like 'Oh my God, the amount of variety he's put in there is breathtaking".[2] Caine also starred in Austin Powers in Goldmember

(2002) as Austin's father and in 2003 he co-starred with Robert Duvall

in Secondhand Lions. Caine played family elder Henry Lair in the 2004 film, Around the Bend. In 2005, he was cast as Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred Pennyworth in the first production of the new Batman film series, Batman Begins. Also in 2005, he played as Isabel's (Nicole Kidman) father in Bewitched. In 2006, he appeared in the films Children of Men and The Prestige. In 2007 he appeared in Flawless, and in 2008 and 2012 he reprised his role as Alfred in Christopher Nolan's critically acclaimed Batman sequels, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises
as well as starring in the British drama Is Anybody There?, which explores the final days of life. It was reported by Empire magazine that Caine had said that Harry Brown (released on 13 November 2009) would be his last lead role.[42] Caine later clarified that he had no intention of retiring, stating that "You don’t retire in this business, the business retires you."[43][44] 2010s[edit]

at Buckingham Palace.[52][53] In a tribute to his background, he stated: "I was named after my father and I was knighted in his name because I love my father. I always kept my real name—I'm a very private and family-orientated person."[54] In 2000 he received a BAFTA
BAFTA
Academy Fellowship Award.[55] In 2008, Caine was awarded the prize for Outstanding Contribution to Showbusiness at the Variety Club

as a person of distinction and eminence of the borough.[58] Popular culture[edit]

"I kept my cockney accent in order to let other working class boys know that if I made it they could do it too."

—Caine speaking to CNN's The Screening Room in 2007 on retaining his accent.[2]

Caine is regarded as a British cultural icon, with Mairi Mackay of CNN stating: " Michael Caine
Michael Caine
has been personifying British cool since the swinging sixties. He has brought some of British cinema's most iconic characters to life and introduced his very own laid-back cockney gangster into pop culture. He doggedly retained a regional accent at a time when the plummy tones of Received Pronunciation
Received Pronunciation
were considered obligatory. It is a sweet irony that his accent has become his calling card."[2] With his distinctive voice and manner of speaking, Caine is a popular subject for impersonators and mimics.[59] Most Caine impressions include the catchphrase "Not a lot of people know that."[2] The catchphrase emanates from Caine's habit of informing people of obscure "interesting facts" that he has collected.[60] Referring to Caine as being the "biggest mine of useless information", Peter Sellers
Peter Sellers
initiated the catchphrase when he appeared on BBC1's Parkinson show on 28 October 1972 and said:

Not many people know that. This is my Michael Caine
Michael Caine
impression. You see, Mike's always quoting from the Guinness Book of Records. At the drop of a hat he'll trot one out. 'Did you know that it takes a man in a tweed suit five-and-a-half seconds to fall from the top of Big Ben to the ground?' Now there's not many people who know that![61]

Over the years Caine himself had parodied the phenomenon, both his catchphrase and his "interesting facts", and has imitated others' impressions of him.[62] In an interview with Michael Parkinson in 2007, Caine commented on the impersonations of his voice, "I can do it. 'Hello. My name is Michael Caine. Not many people know that.' I sound like a bloody moron. You know where they've got me now? On birthday cards. 'It's your birthday today. Not many people know that'. Now they've got me on Satellite navigation. It's me going, 'take the second turn on the right, and you'll wind up right in the shit.'[62] In 1983, Caine used his "not a lot of people know that" phrase as a joke in the film Educating Rita.[2]

The British comedy sketch show, Harry Enfield's Television Programme, included a series of sketches in which Paul Whitehouse played a character called Michael Paine; an amalgam of previous Michael Caine impressions, who in a reference to Caine's character Harry Palmer

wears oversized, thick-rimmed glasses and a trench coat. He introduces himself with the line, "My name is Michael Paine, and I am a nosy neighbour" and in a spoof of the stakeout at the beginning of The Ipcress File, recounts to the camera the 'suspiciously' mundane behaviour of his neighbours, before saying, "Not a lot of people know that I know that".[63] A parody of Caine appears in the animated series Ugly Americans, in the episode "The Dork Knight", which also parodies the film The Dark Knight. In the episode, Caine appears as himself, portrayed in the light of his Alfred Pennyworth
Alfred Pennyworth
interpretation, and constantly annoys the protagonists with endless anecdotes of his career. The 2010 television series The Trip, starring Rob Brydon
Rob Brydon
and Steve Coogan, featured improvised scenes in which the two leads argue over who can do the better Michael Caine
Michael Caine
impression.[64] Among the lines they repeat in their attempts to outdo each other are, "You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" and, "She was only sixteen"—from The Italian Job
The Italian Job
and Get Carter, respectively.[64] Coogan and Brydon later did their impressions from a balcony at the Royal Albert Hall during a celebration of Caine's work, only to be interrupted by the real Caine informing them that they were out of shape: "For me, it's a full-time job."[65] Craig Ferguson
Craig Ferguson
ran segments on his show where he parodied Caine, usually while wearing a space suit.[66] In a 2010 interview with The Telegraph, Caine spoke of the impersonations and how everyone he meets quotes lines at him, to the point he quotes them quoting him.[63] When asked did he ever tire of telling his anecdotes, Caine states: "I enjoy making people laugh. The trick is to tell them against yourself. If you praise yourself your stories aren't funny."[63] Personal life[edit]

and Chelsea Harbour in London. In addition, Caine owns an apartment at the Apogee in Miami Beach, Florida. He still keeps a small flat near where he grew up in south east London. Caine has published two volumes of memoirs, What's It All About? in 1992 and The Elephant to Hollywood in 2010.[69] He was married to actress Patricia Haines

from 1955 to 1962. They have a daughter, Dominique (who was named after the heroine of the novel The Fountainhead
The Fountainhead
by Ayn Rand).[70] He dated Bianca Jagger

in 1968. Caine has been married to actress and model Shakira Baksh since 8 January 1973. They met after Caine saw her appearing in a Maxwell House coffee commercial and a friend gave him her telephone number. He called her every day for ten days until she finally agreed to meet him.[71] They have a daughter, Natasha Haleema.[72][73] As a Christian married to a Muslim, he says "no questions or issues ever come up" and describes his wife's beliefs as "very benign".[74] Proud of his working class roots, Caine has discussed the opportunities his film career gave him: "I got to play football with Pelé, for God’s sake. And I danced with Bob Fosse."[63] He also became close friends with John Lennon, stating: "With John and I it was a case of bonding because we were both working class and we shared a sense of humour. We were pretending we weren’t who people thought we were."[63] His closest friends included two James Bond actors, Sean Connery and the late Roger Moore.[63] Caine quit his 80-a-day cigarette habit in the early 1970s after a lecture by Tony Curtis.[75] Caine is a fan of the sport of cricket. This was alluded to by Gary Oldman, who acted with Caine in the Dark Knight Rises, when he talks about Caine's acting methods: "It's, 'Take one'. He got it. 'Take two', got it. 'Take three', got it. He's just on the money … He doesn't fuck around because he wants to get back to cricket."[76] Some time after his mother died, Caine and his younger brother, Stanley, learned they had an elder half-brother, named David. He suffered from severe epilepsy and had been kept in Cane Hill
Cane Hill
Mental Hospital his entire life. Although their mother regularly visited her first son in the hospital, even her husband did not know the child existed. David died in 1992.[77] Trivia books written by Caine include Not Many People Know That!, And Not Many People Know This Either!, Michael Caine's Moving Picture Show and Not a Lot of People Know This Is 1988. Proceeds from the books went to the National Playing Fields Association, a UK charity which Caine served as Vice President, which aims to protect and promote open spaces for sports and recreation in British cities and towns.[78] In July 2016, Caine changed his name by deed poll to his long-time stage name in order to simplify security checks at airports. "[A security guard] would say, 'Hi Michael Caine,' and suddenly I'd be giving him a passport with a different name on it [Maurice Joseph Micklewhite]. I could stand there for an hour. So I changed my name."[79] Political views[edit] Caine has often been outspoken about his political views. He left the United Kingdom for the United States in the late 1970s, citing the income tax levied on top earners by the Labour government of James Callaghan, which then stood at 83%,[80] but returned to the UK eight years later when taxes had been lowered by the Conservative government of Margaret Thatcher:

I decided not to become a tax exile, so I stayed in Britain, but they kept putting the tax up, so I'd do any old thing every now and then to pay the tax, that was my tax exile money. Maggie Thatcher came in and put the taxes back down and in the end, you know, you don't mind paying tax. What am I going to do? Not pay tax and drive around in a Rolls-Royce, with cripples begging on the street like you see in some countries?[81]

Following the launch of his film Harry Brown, Caine called for the reintroduction of national service in the UK to give young people "a sense of belonging rather than a sense of violence".[82] In 2009, Caine publicly criticised the Labour government of Gordon Brown for its new 50% income tax rate on top earners and threatened to return to the US if his taxes were increased further.[83] During the run up to the 2010 General Election, Caine publicly endorsed the Conservative Party and appeared with party leader David Cameron
David Cameron
for the launch of a civilian non-compulsory "National Service" for 16-year-olds, although Caine stated he had previously supported New Labour under the leadership of Tony Blair
Tony Blair
in 1997.[84] In July 2014, Caine was reported to have been a celebrity investor in a tax avoidance scheme called Liberty.[85] Caine also voted for Brexit, stating he would rather be a "poor master than a rich servant".[86] Music[edit] Caine is a fan of chill-out music and released a compilation CD called Cained in 2007 on the UMTV
UMTV
record label.[87][88] He met Elton John
Elton John
and was discussing musical tastes, when Caine said that he had been creating chillout mix tapes as an amateur for years.[88][89] Also in music, Caine provided vocal samples for the Ska-pop band Madness for their 1984 hit "Michael Caine" as his daughter was a fan. He has sung in film roles as well, including Little Voice and for the 1992 musical film The Muppet Christmas Carol. Filmography[edit] Main article: Michael Caine
