Michael Caine Teaches Acting In Film

NOTE FROM LB: Many years ago, when I was an “Executive Story Consultant” on an NBC TV series called Medical Story (like the better known Police Story except about doctors and not nearly as well known), I had the good fortune to spend an afternoon with Michael Caine, who was between shots on a film he was shooting at Burbank Studios, where Medical Story was filmed.

The film was called Harry and Walter Go To New York, and Caine’s partners in crime in a film that was itself a crime against filmmaking were James Caan and Elliott Gould. I don’t remember how I ended up in the trailer, but there I was being regaled with story after story about Caine’s career. As fine an actor as he is – and he’s very fine indeed – Caine’s stories are even better.

Whether you’re an actor, a writer, a director, or “just” a fan, this is your chance to see a master storyteller at the top of his fame. Watch and learn! (I know I did.)
