Michael Caine, 75 today

"My name is Sir Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, Jr., CBE". Better known as Michael Caine, the English actor is 75 today. One of this countries best known actors I thought I'd mark the occasion by listing my top ten favourite Michael Caine movies. Same rules as usual, only films I've seen and only ones where he plays a major role, rather than a small part (like Batman Begins).

  1. The Ipcress File (and The Billion Dollar Brain)
  2. Get Carter
  3. The Italian Job
  4. Alfie
  5. Educating Rita
  6. The Eagle Has Landed
  7. Zulu
  8. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
  9. The Forth Protocol
  10. Escape to Victory

...and he's done a few stinkers but nothing as bad a Jaws: The Revenge
