Michael Caine’s best films – ranked by The Guardian

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/jun/14/michael-caine-best-films-ranked





I have my own particular favourites and found it hard to nominate a number 1 so I'll call it at as Alfie and The Man Who Would Be King as joint top.

At least a dozen of those are good-to-great.
I'd say he's underrated, but everybody seems to like him.
