    The Romantic Englishwoman

    The Romantic Englishwoman

    It's Racy Caine with an unpleasant dash of Paranoid Caine in this episode, starring opposite Glenda Jackson in a middle-class melodrama where people talk each other into near-comas, while also making an extra-marital affairs look like an awful dose of hassle. And Glenda gets fairly comfortable with the nudity on and off-screen, much to our man's unease. This is The Romantic Englishwoman.

    The Wilby Conspiracy

    It's Conscience Caine with A Cause this time round as our man rises to the occasion opposite the great Sidney Poitier and Nicol Williamson in The Wilby Conspiracy, a curious and quirky anti-apartheid thriller from 1975.

    The Black Windmill

    The Black Windmill

    After a sabbatical kicking back with Shakira and their new baby daughter Natasha, relaxing at his Windsor mansion and pruning his roses, Michael Caine is back in 1974 with director Don Siegel (Dirty Harry) and John Vernon (also Dirty Harry) in The Black Windmill, a British spy 'thriller' guaranteed on paper to make oodles of cash for everyone and enjoy a long, happy life of TV repeats. But the path of Caine never runs that smoothly...

    Sleuth

    Sleuth

    This week we briefly address Michael Caine's retirement/non-retirement before getting down and dirty with Sleuth. It's Olivier vs Caine in a titanic struggle to see who can chew the most scenery before being carted off with a case of acting gastroenteritis.
