London Cool: Michael Caine in the 1960s

1 Jul


In England I was a Cockney actor, in America I was an actor.

Just published by the excellent London photo-book publishers Reel Art Press (check their earlier volumes on ‘Hollywood and the Ivy League’, ‘Weddings and Movies Stars’ and the ‘Kennedys’ for some wonderful images presented in lovely, large format books – these really will be collectors items in years to come), ‘Michael Caine: 1960s’ contains some great images of the patron saint of tall, gangly East End kids at the start of his career.  Excellent stuff, and reminds you what all the fuss was about (which he’s tried to hide in latter years with his curmudgeonly cabbie chat show persona – that won’t work Michael, because these shots show how cool, ground-breaking and downright beautiful you once were).  An inspiration to all working class kids with ideas above their station, and an eye for the girl.  And very (original) mod.  Great text by Graham Marsh too.
