From Elephant to Hollywood – Michael Caine

Rating: 3.5 stars
Shelf: Reading Now

Not spectacularly written – but it didn’t need to be. Reading this felt as though I’d just sat down to tea with Sir Michael Caine and he’d decided to grace me with well-told and enrapturing stories of Hollywood, old and new. Michael Caine is a good, good man who funny in a way that is heartfelt and sweetly sentimental. His career has spanned old Hollywood, where he worked alongside actors like Danny Kay, Peter O’Toole, Laurence Olivier, Cary Grant – to name a few. And new Hollywood – where he works with the newer up and coming actors and is always recognized and loved no matter what character he’s playing. So – I enjoyed this. A lot. Again, I’d give it a 3.5 if those things were allowed.

    Interesting title. I don't usually get a chance to read too many biographies, but that could be interesting.
