JA from MNPP here, wishing the great Sir Michael Caine a happy 80th birthday. I used pictures of him in Children of Men and as Alfred in Nolan's Batman movies mostly because they express his admirable range succinctly - can you imagine a conversation between Alfred and Jasper? - but they're also two of my favorite performances from him, at least from within the past decade or so. I'm not much of a Batman fan but Caine did some very good work therein. Looking further back his role in Dirty Rotten Soundrels was a favorite of mine when I was young, and then of course there's Hannah and Her Sisters, with that infamous Oscar tale of missing the ceremony so he could shoot Jaws: The Revenge. (Sad but true fact - I have seen Jaws: The Revenge more times than I have seen Hannah and Her Sisters. Stone me now. Jaws: The Revenge is just so entertainingly terrible!) And what about Dressed To Kill? It's tranvestitastic. And then all of his classics that modern stars have remade trying (and failing) to ape his effortless cool - Alfie and Get Carter and The Italian Job. What's your favorite Caine?
