Trivia that mentions this person:
Austin Powers in Goldmember [2002]
  • Mike Myers has said that his glasses in all three films are meant to look like those worn by Michael Caine in The Ipcress File, so Caine took the original glasses (model "Teviot 74" by UK Optical) to the set and wore them as Nigel.
  • Michael York and Michael Caine, both veteran English actors with over 100 films each to his credit, had never worked on a film together before this one.
    Batman Begins [2005]
  • Since Alfred's sense of duty and loyalty towards Bruce Wayne reminded him of the comradeship that exists in the military, Sir Michael Caine based his character's voice on that of a colonel he knew when he was in the army as an 18-year-old.
    Batman: The Movie [1966]
  • This was the only live-action feature-length [Batman] film in which Alfred is not played by an actor named Michael until 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (with Jeremy Irons). Michael Gough played the part in Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman & Robin. Michael Caine took over for Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
    The Muppet Christmas Carol [1992]
  • There is a store called "Micklewhite". Michael Caine's real name is Maurice Micklewhite.

    Into the Woods [2014]
  • In earlier drafts, the essential Narrator character from the original stage musical was still part of the story. Before the role was written out of the script, many actors were either considered, in talks, or asked to play the role including Jeremy Irons, Christopher Plummer, Geoffrey Rush, James Earl Jones, John Cleese, Michael Caine, Michael Gambon, and Alan Rickman. There were even rumors about giving this role to a female such as Julie Andrews or Angela Lansbury who are both Disney favorites as well as experts on Stephen Sondheim's material.
    The Muppet Show: Season 3 [1978]
  • During the course of the show, Jim Henson wrote out a list of dream guests, and urged the writers and puppeteers to do the same. Henson's list included [?] Bil Baird, Shari Lewis, [?] Burr Tillstrom, Stan Freberg, [?] Mae West, Mia Farrow, [?] Princess Anne, Kim Novak, and [?] Katharine Hepburn.

    Kingsman: The Secret Service [2014]
  • In Sir Michael Caine's final scene, he speaks with his native Cockney accent, suggesting that Arthur's roots are not so aristocratic as one would think.
    Tenet [2020]
  • There was much secrecy surrounding the project before its release. Actor Robert Pattinson said that he was only allowed to read the script in a locked office at Warner Bros. studios. His co-star Michael Caine wasn't even allowed to read the entire screenplay. He was given his scenes only to read before shooting. Prior to the movie's release, Caine told press that he had no idea what the film was about, despite being a very close friend and a frequent collaborator of director Christopher Nolan.
    Jaws: The Revenge [1987]
  • This is one of Michael Caine's notorious "paycheck movies", along with The Swarm (1978), Ashanti (1979), Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (1979), The Island (1980), The Hand (1981) and Blame It on Rio (1984). When Caine was asked about this movie in an interview, he answered, "I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific."
