(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. In this edition, we take a look at some of the best Michael Caine movies you probably haven’t seen.)
Most actors go their whole careers without starring in a film destined to stand the test of time. Michael Caine, though, has more classics on his resume than most actors have films in their entire filmography. Alfie, Gambit, The Italian Job, Get Carter, and Sleuth are just a small handful of his most memorable movies, and not coincidentally, they’ve all been remade in the decades since their original release. Of course, Caine is famously an actor who pretty much never says no to an offer, meaning he’s also made more than a few outright stinkers. Between those two extremes sit a ton of films that range from mediocre to magnificent, but for whatever reason they’ve avoided the reputation as being among his best (Without a Clue) or worst (On Deadly Ground). They’re unappreciated, and it’s time to change that.
