Happy Birthday, Michael Caine!



English actor Michael Caine took his screen name from the 1954 film The Caine Mutiny. He has played a wide variety of roles over his six-decade career and been nominated for an Oscar in each of them from (1960s to 2000s). He is a perhaps best known for his role in 1986's Hannah and Her Sisters and 1999's The Cider House Rules. Queen Elizabeth II knighted him in 2000 for his contribution to cinema.

Some of my favorite Michael Caine roles include The Weatherman, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and The Man who Would be King. For a complete list of Michael Caine films available at the library, please click here. What's your favorite?
