Today being the 81st birthday anniversary of the great Michael Caine, it follows that our pic of the day is from Peter Hyams‘ Peeper (1976). Private eye Leslie Tucker (Caine) faces down bad guy Sid, while an only slightly concerned Ellen Prendergast (Natalie Wood) looks on.
It’s great to see Caine still working steadily in films, as he has been since the late 1950s. He’s always a delight to watch on-screen, and the interplay between himself and Tim in this film, however brief, is a gem. With at least five films currently in production, he’s unstoppable. Happy birthday, Sir Michael!
