It’s been a long journey for Maurice Micklewhite – born with rickets in London’s poverty-stricken Elephant & Castle – to the bright lights of Hollywood. With a glittering career spanning more than five decades and starring roles that have earned him two Oscars, a knighthood, and an iconic place in the Hollywood pantheon, the man now known to us as Michael Caine looks back over it all. Funny, warm and honest, Caine gives us his insider’s view of Hollywood. He recalls the films, the legendary stars, and the off-screen moments. Hollywood has been his home and his playground. But England is where his heart lies. And where he blames the French for the abundance of snails in his garden.
