The Man Who Would Be Caine
Decades before he carried Batman’s breakfast and launched a thousand Cockney impersonations, Michael Caine mostly played transgressors. In late-60s and early 70s films like ALFIE, GET CARTER and THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING, Caine brought a streetwise intelligence to a gallery of anti-social rogues: philanderers, killers and colonialists. Ahead of Caine’s 88th birthday, Noah and Chance dive into the first act of the English legend’s storied career.
