That’s that so far… and all will be commented on and shared. And tune in for the final of all final posts tomorrow!

But just before the post’s most important task of this evening a wee Realweegiemidget gitter. I’d like to say that throughout this blogathon I’ve read and loved all your wonderful posts. I’ve adored these touching tributes to so many Michael Caine Movies, bringing back so many wonderful memories of Caine in so many, much-loved films..

I’m making this a yearly tribute to the lovable Cockney, and I’d like to invite you all to join me with the 2nd Marvellous Michael Caine blogathon 2019. Which I hope to hold around his birthday time next year…but will definitely happen!

But in the meantime… we’re lighting the candles of the cake, and Michael Caine if you are reading this Happy Birthday Sir! Thank you so much for everything (including and especially for those 1980s guilty pleasures that bought you houses, house extensions, swimming pools etc).

Over 40 years I’ve been brought up with great times watching your Harry Palmer movies and The Swarm and The Hand with my dad, Sweet Liberty and Educating Rita from my mum’s Caine favourites and more recently X,Y and Zee and Interstellar with my Darlin Husband.

Your many, many, many more…your performances have made me cry, laugh and smile. Thanks for everything so far and still to come and Happy Birthday!

  1. Thanks for hosting this. Awesome that it’s going to be a yearly event. 🙂

    It would be awesome if Michael read this and saw how much he and his films are loved.

  2. Been sharing my posts with the links with him on Twitter, although it is unclaer whether he has read them one of your Stats just might be him. After all, had some lovely likes and comments from some of the Dallas cast after my first blogathon on this topic (also making a reappearance this year!)


  3. Might my mess up, I attached the links to your site and in the past I thought that sends you a notification to approve it. No biggie. Cheers’ Gave me a chance to see a Caine movie I’d ignored for years. 🙂

  4. I’m primarily a sports blogger, but I’ve always also been a classic film fan. On my own page, I’ve written a lot about the cross-over between film and sport. Now that I’m starting to discover the classic film blog community, I’m looking forward to being part of a William Holden Blog-A-Thon next month. I was bummed I just found out about this one, but f this is going to be a yearly event, is it too early to call dibs on “Victory?” 🙂

  5. I am so sorry I missed this! 😦 I was down to do a review of ‘Alfie’ but we’ve been away on a family holiday and lost wifi while away. My sincerest apologies! But at least I have a review on hand for this blogathon next year. Look forward to reading the reviews here. Best regards, Paul from Silver Screen Classics
