“Caine knows so much, not just about acting, but about the whole business of filmmaking. Don’t think of this as too esoteric or for actors only. You’ll be laughing, absorbed and enchanted.”

The Daily Telegraph

“Love scenes on film will never be
the same …”

The Sunday Times

“Witty, articulate and always entertaining, Michael Caine takes
the nuts and bolts of film acting
to pieces and gives away more
trade secrets in the process
than you thought existed.”

The Observer

“Caine demonstrates how
sheer technique can mutate into
something meaningful and moving”

London Evening Standard

“A serious, but entertaining, insight into the mechanics of acting.”


MICHAEL CAINE’s international reputation
as a top-ranking actor makes him eminently qualified to impart words of wisdom to others about his craft. He holds an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the film, “Hannah and
Her Sisters” (1986), and was nominated for an Oscar
for three films prior to that: for “Alfie” (1966),
“Sleuth” (1972), and “Educating Rita” (1983).
The subject of a major profile on CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes,”
he has more than 66 films to his credit, and is acknowledged worldwide for his versatility and his remarkable ability to consistently deliver top quality performances in his many acting endeavors.

Born in London, Michael Caine appeared on the British stage,
in stock companies, and on British television before making
his name in the motion picture world. Among Caine’s films
are “Funeral in Berlin” (1966); “The Eagle Has Landed” (1975); “California Suite” (1978); “Deathtrap” (1982); “Sweet Liberty” (1985); “Without a Clue” (1988); “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” (1988), “A Shock to the System” (1990);
and “Bullseye” (1990).

In 1988 he returned to television for the first time in 24 years to star in CBS-TV’s four-hour mini-series, “Jack the Ripper,” which,
in Britain, was surpassed in viewership only by the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles. In 1989 Caine starred in the heralded ABC-TV production “Jekyll and Hyde.”
