5.0 out of 5 stars Great insights by a master
Superb. A practical and honest insight in to the craft (rather than art) of film acting. Caine dispenses his wisdom liberally and one quickly begins to appreciate that professionalism and hard work are the key to any career. Caine has those qualities in spades - it is in fact his dedication to them that has also made him a great artist.

This book is a "rip off" for the price of over £7 there are but few pages for the price and it is transcribed from a tv mastercass.Maria Aitken is making too much out of a very slim text.

This review is from: Acting in Film: An Actor's Take on Moviemaking (The Applause Acting Series) (Paperback)
Ever wondered what Michael Caine gets up to when he's locked in his trailer for hours before going on set...?

A charming, witty, and surprisingly informative book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 15 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
Acting In Film is humorous, candid and informative not only to the aspiring actor, but to the film viewer as well.
Some important messages addressed are: Preparation, spontaneity, and behavior on and off the set.
Actin in Film gives valuable tools to any actor including those interested in Community Theater. A must have book for all movie buffs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for screen acting., 1 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Acting in Film: An Actor's Take on Moviemaking (The Applause Acting Series) (Paperback)
This book was great in giving advice, although specific for acting for film (if it is stage you are after, this book wouldn't be much help).
Caine provides valuable tips and tricks on the trade, from being an extra to being the number one star on set. He covers camera angles to continuity to manners! Perfect and worth the money if you are serious about being an actor/actress in film/television.

This review is from: Acting in Film: An Actor's Take on Moviemaking (The Applause Acting Series) (Paperback)
Just finished reading this book and I came on here to leave the review immediately. I have never done that before! Seriously, it's got most of the answers to questions I would ask an actor in movies. It's funny as well. Would recommend!! Michael Caine, as you would expect definitely knows what he is talking about!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Michael Caine on Acting, 5 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Acting in Film: An Actor's Take on Moviemaking (The Applause Acting Series) (Paperback)
I really did like this read. Interspersed with touches of his usual east end humour, Michael Caines' guide to acting is an invaluable pocket guide for the aspiring actor. Including a comprehensive filmography of his best and not so good films, this booklet covers a great deal.

For someone who doesn't know a lot about film acting this book is a very helpful insight. Michael caine's approach towards acting is so down to earth and genuine. Its also really funny! I would recommend to anyone in the field, as its appropriate for any performer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn from the Master.........., 9 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do some acting and who, apart from the master of screen acting, has written a better book. No-one as far as I can tell. There are lots of lovely little vignettes that you can learn from. What more can you ask for ?
