Summary
"Over the six decades of his remarkable career, film legend Michael Caine has starred in some of the biggest movies of all time -- from Alfie to the Dark Knight trilogy, Hannah and Her Sisters to Zulu -- and he's made success look easy. In reality it has been one huge learning curve, from his unlikely beginnings as the son of a London fish porter to pursuing his dream of being an actor, finding success and managing every twist, trick, and turn to stay at the top of his game. The greatest trick, as he says, has always been "to grasp every bloody opportunity that appears in front of me." Now, in his 85th year, Caine looks back at an incredible life and career -- sharing hard-won wisdom and insight about how he always "used the difficulty" in his life to find success onscreen and off. Told with uncommon candor and humor, Blowing the Bloody Doors Off is packed with delightful tales from Caine's extraordinary half century in Hollywood, including his brushes with luminaries like Elizabeth Taylor, John Wayne, Christopher Nolan, Jack Nicholson, Sean Connery, Laurence Olivier, Shelley Winters, Frank Sinatra, and more."--
