Alfie | 1966 | Michael Caine, Shelley Winters

Michael Caine plays a philandering Cockney anti-hero, in the film that made him an international star. Alfie – both the film and the character – is representative of the swinging-London culture of the 1960s. While enormously funny, and accompanied by a terrific soundtrack, the film is also weightier than one might imagine, and covers such sombre issues as abortion. Nominated for several awards, including 5 Oscars and 6 Golden Globes.
