    not alot of people know this:

    Michael Caine, at 6' 2" ft tall, is one of the tallest men in the movies. Stand him next to Tom Cruise and it would be mission impossible for Cruise to be other than a small guy who Caine would paternally fit into his top pocket so he could get a better view of things

    b Maurice Joseph Micklewhite London, 1933

      With the perspective of time, when the
      history of British cinema in the 20th-Century
      is written, the name of Michael Caine will
      be the most important in that book. He will
      be remembered as a bigger name, more
      important, more of a star, than the likes of
      Laurence Olivier or Alec Guinness. Why?
      Because he has that screen charisma that
      so few of the actors from British cinema have.
      It is indefinable but whatever it is then Caine
      has it in abundance.

    In the '60s he appeared in some of that era's greatest films in cinema and his bespectacled face became the icon of those times. Indeed so great were his performances that there should now be a law passed that no film director should be allowed to remake one of his movies, period. The original Alfie (1966) with the main character having to talk to camera had the potential to be a disaster and was a success wholly down to Caine and his screen presence (and Jude Law with no beginning to his screen talent will attest to that fact by the appalling remake he appeared in in 2004); Get Carter in 2000 confirmed that Sly Stallone has and will never have a miniscule of Caine's acting talent; and The Italian Job remake is a poor movie just because we remember Caine and the original.

    He left the '60s and '70s behind to achieve even greater success with two Oscars and a knighthood. Not bad for the son of a fish-porter father and a charwoman mother. His beginnings were indeed less than glamorous.

    Born Maurice Micklewhite on May 14, 1933, in the squalid South London neighborhood of Bermondsey, Caine got his first taste of the world beyond when he was evacuated to the countryside during World War II. A misfit in school, the military (he served during the Korean War), and the job pool, Caine found acceptance after answering a want ad for an assistant stage manager at the Horsham Repertory Company. Already star struck thanks to incessant filmgoing, Caine naturally took to acting, even though the life of a British regional actor was one step away from abject poverty. Changing his last name from Micklewhite to Caine in tribute to one of his favorite movies, The Caine Mutiny (1954), the actor toiled in obscurity in unbilled film bits and TV walk-ons from 1956 through 1962, occasionally obtaining leads on a TV series based on the Edgar Wallace mysteries.

    Caine's big break occurred in 1963, when he was cast in a leading role in the epic, star-studded historical adventure film Zulu. Suddenly finding himself bearing a modicum of importance in the British film industry, the actor next played Harry Palmer, the bespectacled, iconoclastic secret agent protagonist of The Ipcress File (1965); he would go on to reprise the role in two more films, Funeral in Berlin (1966) and The Billion Dollar Brain (1967).

    After 12 years of obscure and unappreciated work, Caine was glibly hailed as an "overnight star," and with the success of The Ipcress Files, advanced to a new role as a major industry player. He went on to gain international fame in his next film, Alfie (1966), in which he played the title character, a gleefully cheeky, womanizing cockney lad. For his portrayal of Alfie, Caine was rewarded with a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination.

    One of the most popular action stars of the late '60s and early '70s, Caine had leading roles in films such as the classic 1969 action comedy The Italian Job (considered by many to be the celluloid manifestation of all that was hip in Britain at the time); Joseph L. Manckiewicz's Sleuth (1972), in which he starred opposite and blew away Laurence Olivier and won his second Oscar nomination; and The Man Who Would Be King (1976), which cast him alongside Sean Connery. His international status was further confirmed with his role in the much-acclaimed California Suite (1978), in which he headlined a cast including Jane Fonda, Maggie Smith, Walter Matthau, Bill Cosby, and Elaine May.

    During the 1980s, Caine gained additional acclaim with an Oscar nomination for Educating Rita (1983) and a 1986 Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Hannah and Her Sisters. He also appeared in the smaller but similarly acclaimed Mona Lisa (also 1986), and two years later once again proved his comic talents with the hit comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, in which he and Steve Martin starred as scheming con artists.

    Although Caine was no less prolific during the 1990s, his career began to falter with a series of lackluster films. Among the disappointments were Steven Seagal's environmental action flick On Deadly Ground (1994) and Blood and Wine, a 1996 thriller in which he starred with Jack Nicholson and Judy Davis.

    In the late '90s, Caine began to rebound, appearing in the acclaimed independent film Little Voice (1998), for which he won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of a seedy talent agent. In addition, Caine -- or Sir Michael, as he was called after receiving his knighthood in 2000 -- got a new audience through his television work, starring in the 1997 miniseries Mandela and de Klerk.

    The actor, who was ranked 55 in Empire Magazine's 1997 Top 100 Actors of All Time list, also kept busy as the co-owner of a successful London restaurant, and enjoyed a new wave of appreciation from younger filmmakers who praised him as the film industry's enduring model of British cool. This appreciation was further evidenced in 2000, when Caine was honored with a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of an abortionist in The Cider House Rules.

    After starting off the new millennium with both a revitalized career momentum and newfound popularity among fans who were too young to appreciate his early efforts, Caine once again scored a hit with the art-house circuit as the torturous Dr Royer-Collard in director Phillip Kaufman's Quills.

    Sylvester Stallone attempted to step into Caine's big shoes and was told to go to the kiddies section for a pathetic and pointless remake of Get Carter (in which Caine also appeared in a minor role) the actor would gain positive notice the following year for his turn as a friend attempting to keep a promise in Last Orders.

    To emphasize Caine's coolness to a new generation of moviegoers, his turn as bespectacled super-spy Austin Powers' father in Austin Powers in Goldmember proved that even years beyond The Italian Job Caine was still at the top of his game. Moving seamlessly from kitsch to stirring /drama, Caine's role in 2002's The Quiet American earned the actor not only some of the best reviews of his later career, but another Oscar nomination as well.
