Not a lot of people know that it’s Michael Caine’s 85th birthday on the 14th March 2018…
Celebrating it here on Realweegiemidget Reviews in the Marvellous Michael Caine Blogathon From Alfie to Zulu 2018.
20 Great Michael Caine Films, Kevin Kavanagh, http://www.youtube.com
Michael Caine has been one of those actors I’ve grown up with since watching Surrender (1987) with my dad, to Interstellar (2014) and with my Darlin’ Husband. And those in between and after. He’s been the star of 115 films and counting, won 2 Oscars and been starring in movies for over 60 years. I’ve loved him in his romantic comedies with Sally Field and Michelle Pfieffer, his disaster movies with Richard Widmark and Richard Chamberlain and his war films with Larry Hagman and Sylvester Stallone. Leading me to announce this Cockney actor’s birthday blogathon. And despite the possibly misleading title of this blogathon, it’s covering all of his career to date including his voice work, cameos and life story.
So as you’ll see as 2018 is approaching I’ve blogathons on my mind, and this is the first of possibly five that may happen next year (with 2 definite joint ones so far). So as Caine is due to turn a spritely 85 next year, I’m tying in this blogathon with his birthday and running it from the 12th to 14th March 2018, the last day being Michael Caine’s birthday and a recap of all the posts after that.
So here’s the rules…
And love you lovely lot of Film, TV and Book bloggers to join me….or anyone else who wants to celebrate all things Michael Caine,
- You can review ANY film or TV show starring Michael Caine, including cameos as long as you mention the part of the film with his cameo AND include a video clip or picture of it. Or if you want to review his books, that’s ok with me too.
- I will allow three duplicates for each topic be it movie, book or TV Show, but no more. I might be more lenient where books are to be reviewed as he hasn’t written as much.
- Review choices can be added as a comment on this page or you can contact me on my Contact Me page – either way please add the name and URL of your blog along with your choice of movie / book or TV choice.
- Or if you want to write about Caine, tell me what your topic will be. I won’t accept posts which are uncomplimentary or respectful to this man and his life and work.
- Add your Twitter or Facebook pages so I can promote your post.
- You can also add podcasts on his work but only if you send me the podcast link by my Contact Me page.
- A full list of blogs, podcasters and review choices will be posted on a separate page and updated regularly.
