More than being the Batman’s butler and the hapless witness of the game of oneupmanship between two magicians , Sir Michael Caine is many things and being one of the greatest actors alive, is definitely one of them. Starting from a humble background, he rose to stardom by his breakout act in ‘Alfie’ where he played a serial womaniser, bedding every woman he met on his way. Over the years, he matured into one of the most bankable actors, who could carry the script on his able shoulders.

Nevertheless, after much deliberation we came up with the list, having some of his memorable work. Read on.. here is the list of top Michael Caine movies that prove he is a legend. You can watch some of these best Michael Caine movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
10. Dressed To Kill (1980)
Directed by Brian De Palma, this movie talks about a blond killer, wearing high heels and black glasses. An erotic thriller, ‘Dressed To Kill’ had Michael Caine playing a sympathetic psychiatrist to a frustrated woman. It’s really difficult to talk about this film, without revealing anything so let me put in this way: This’s De Palma’s tribute to Hitchcock and Caine plays a huge role in it. Watch out for that murder sequence in the elevator. Pure class. One of the underrated Michael Caine movies.
