  • Michael Caine stars as ALFIE, a feckless London lothario whose chief pleasure in life is to have a good time on dates with a different woman each day of the week. When he accidentally impregnates his live-in girlfriend, Gilda (Julia Foster), he takes a vacation in the country to think about his life--while still managing to engage in sexual affairs with a variety of women, including millionairess Ruby (Shelley Winters), young runaway Siddie (Millicent Martin), and even his friend's wife, Lily (Vivien Merchant). However, Alfie can't vacation forever. Before long, his fatherly responsibilities catch up with him and he's forced to face the product of his debauchery.

    Based on the novel of the same name by Bill Naughton, ALFIE touches on a number of controversial topics (polygamy and child abandonment, for starters). Director Lewis Gilbert cleverly mixes comedy and tragedy with a crucial lesson about immorality. The film features one of Caine's finest performances.
