Caine uses humor and personal experiences from the start to the height of his career to impart knowledge about the do’s and dont’s of the acting business. He is a major Hollywood film star and two-time Academy Award winner with a career spanning over sixty years. Un acercamiento totalmente amigable para el actor en formación e incluso meros aficionados a dicho arte; donde no sólo cuenta su propia experiencia frente a la cámara, sino que comparte consejos que pueden tener impacto en la carrera propia para bien o para mal.

This new revised and expanded edition features great photos throughout, with chapters on: Preparation, In Front of the Camera - Before You Shoot, The Take, Characters, Directors, On Being a Star, and much more. It's brief and to the point, full of common sense advice that makes as much sense now as it did in 1990. Sir Michael Caine, CBE was born Maurice Joseph Micklewaite near Elephant and Castle in South London.

It’s a strange situation, but in film a person is a person, not an actor; and yet you need an actor to play the person. This book also shows you how acting worked in the 1960's,1970's and beyond, the differences in the way that staff behind the scenes worked, even gender differences and technical advances which changed the way actors worked in the film world. I remember viewing this when it was originally broadcast by the BBC, so it is good to be able to own a copy. In this book actor Michael Caine describes being a leading actor in films, he says that his job is the carry the entire film and give life to the filmmaker’s vision.

I was a Cockney boy and obviously didn’t fit anybody’s idea of what an actor was supposed to be, so I decided to put together elements that added up to a memorable package. The best movie actors become their characters to such an extent that the product isn’t viewed by an audience as a performance.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.
