“Bloody Hell!” It’s The Michael Caine Movie Poster Gallery

While I have always considered myself a fan of Michael Caine I somehow seem to come across more people who strongly tell me there not versus those who seem to support the former Maurice Micklewhite.

Growing up he seemed to be a workhorse and even today that term could still apply to Caine though the majority of his roles are smaller now or slightly larger than a cameo. Sure he turned up in quite a bit of Swarm like material but even then I seemed to have fun with many of his action oriented films and his on screen tantrums always seemed to be a joyous moment for this viewer on my weekend rentals from the local video store. I won’t bother mentioning Jaws : The Revenge……..oops. Did it again. Can I have another “Bloody Hell!” from someone please.

I didn’t always catch his more dramatic roles from his younger years but as I got older I have gone back and looked at many of them. Some good, some not so but when you have made as many films as Michael your bound to have a few hits and misses along the way.

  1. As a Brit who lived there through the Thatcher years, I can tell you exactly why a lot of people aren’t Caine fans. ”I couldn’t detect horse manure if I stepped in it!” Yep, that about sums him up.

  2. Terrific posters and not a bad movie among them. I actually watched Caine in a very early role the other day – as an Irish hoodlum in an Edgar Wallace programmer, Solo for Sparrow.

  3. I say this almost every time you do a poster feature: boy, do I miss the illustrated posters, and I know I’m not the only one since the alternate/”art” poster trend is so hot.

  4. Brilliant Mike. What no poster of “Blame It On Rio” hehe . I haven’t seen it since my teenage age years but we were watching it for Michelle not Michael 🙂
    Oh my “Water” I was sure I had never heard of that until I had a look on IMDB and I believe I had a few flash backs. Might have to try and revisit that one.
    I haven’t even heard of “Play Dirty” and what an awesome poster, respects. Need to add that Caineage to the pile. Cheers buddy
