Raising Caine on TCM: From Smooth Gay Villain to Tough Guy in 'Best British Film Ever'

5 August 2015 11:27 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Michael Caine young. Michael Caine movies: From Irwin Allen bombs to Woody Allen classic It's hard to believe that Michael Caine has been around making movies for nearly six decades. No wonder he's had time to appear – in roles big and small and tiny – in more than 120 films, ranging from unwatchable stuff like the Sylvester Stallone soccer flick Victory and Michael Ritchie's adventure flick The Island to Brian G. Hutton's X, Y and Zee, Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Sleuth (a duel of wits and acting styles with Laurence Olivier), and Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men. (See TCM's Michael Caine movie schedule further below.) Throughout his long, long career, Caine has played heroes and villains and everything in between. Sometimes, in his worst vehicles, he has floundered along with everybody else. At other times, he was the best element in otherwise disappointing fare, e.g., Philip Kaufman's Quills. »

13 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Queenie Pie was the talk of the town and Duke Ellington was the reason. When the great jazz composer died in 1974, he left behind an unfinished “street opera” that offered resplendent possibilities with its exuberant score, Harlem setting and memorable characters. A little-known writer named George C. Wolfe was brought in to work on the book and choreographer Garth Fagan staged Queenie Pie‘s heralded 1986 premiere in Philadelphia. New York Times critic Robert Palmer… »
