Product Description

Product Description

Five classic movies starring Michael Caine. In 'Educating Rita' (1983), working-class hairdresser Rita (Julie Walters) enrols in an adult education course in literature at her local university, determined to expand her mind. She is assigned alcoholic lecturer Dr. Frank Bryant (Caine) and, as Rita's horizons broaden, she begins to feel stifled by her home life. Simultaneously, Frank's academic career takes a turn for the worse as his drinking increases. In 'The Fourth Protocol' (1987), when Soviet spy Valeri Petrofsky (Pierce Brosnan) is charged with bringing about the demise of NATO, he decides his best bet is to detonate an American nuclear bomb at a British air base. The only man who can stand in his way is veteran counter-espionage expert John Preston (Caine), but he must fight the opposition of his bosses before they agree to take the threat seriously. In 'The Eagle Has Landed' (1976), a group of Nazi soldiers parachute into Norfolk during World War II and infiltrate a small village near the holiday retreat of Winston Churchill. Their plan is to assassinate the British Prime Minister. But the villagers are not without initiative and, as their plans get protracted, they find themselves facing moral and practical dilemmas. In 'The Ipcress File' (1965), Caine plays cockney secret service man Harry Palmer in the first of a trilogy of 1960s spy capers. Here Harry tracks down a missing scientist, only to discover that one of his own superiors is a double agent. Finally, in 'Without a Clue' (1988), Victorian society is thrilled by the crime-solving adventures of the great Sherlock Holmes, unaware that he is in fact a fictional character created by the real sleuth - Dr Watson (Ben Kingsley) - as a cover for his own detecting abilities. When Scotland Yard request that Holmes help them with their latest, baffling case, Watson is forced to provide him, in the form of weak, drunken actor Reginald Kincaid (Caine).

From Amazon.co.uk

Five top films from one of Britain's greatest stars.

The Fourth Protocol
On 1 July 1968, America, Britain and Russia signed a treaty to halt the spread of nuclear weapons. The powers then added tour extra clauses. The most secret and dangerous of them was, and remains, the final. One winter, the Chairman of the KGB hatches a plan to breach this Fourth Protocol and detroy NATO. He sends an agent, Major Petrofsky (Pierce Brosnan), to assemble the operation. It is now up to M16 agent John Preston (Michael Caine) to stop him and his devastating mission. A truly classic thriller from Frederick Forsyth.

Educating Rita
Rita - a hairdresser with a sharp wit - is married to Denny and at 26 doesn’t want a baby. She wants to discover herself so she joins the Open University. Dr. Frank Bryant is a disillusioned university profesor of literature. His marriage has failed, his girlfriend is having an affair with his best friend and he can’t get through the day without downing a bottle or two of whisky. What Frank needs is a challenge. Then along comes Rita. In this hilarious and often moving drama, the story tells how two people find a new lease of life through each other.

The Ipcress File
The tense spy thriller by Len Deighton that turned Michael Caine into a superstar. Cynical and rebellious ex-army sergeant Harry Palmer has been blackmailed into working for Britain’s security service. Hot on the trail of a kidnapped scientist, Palmer finds himself entangled in a sinister conspiracy involving horrifying brainwashing techniques, murar and treachery that reaches up to the highest levels of the security service itself.

The Eagle Has Landed
A Nazi strike force plots to assassinate Winston Churchill while he is resting in a desolate Norfolk village. Colonel Radl (Robert Duvall) masterminds the plot which, if successful, would change the outcome of the war. He enlists the help of Colonel Steiner (Michael Caine) and Liam Devlin (Donald Sutherland). Disguised as Polish airmen, German paratroopers land in England. Radl’s plans appear to be going smoothly until an unforeseeable incident exposes the Germans. But the kidnap continues and Steiner, Luger in hand, approaches the unmistakable figure of Churchill. The action and suspense are unrelenting in this World War Two thriller based in Jack Higgins’ bestseller.

Without A Clue
Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley star in this hilarious and twisted spoof of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes mysteries. In this version, Dr Watson is the true master detective and Sherlock Homes is an out-and-out idiot.

The Michael Caine Collection is a boxset of five films - and at under a tenner, represents great value for money. Here's a brief description of what is on each DVD:

The Ipcress File (1965) Michael Caine's first starring role. Unlike Bond, this film not only shows the excitement of being a secret agent, but also the tedium - such as filling out paperwork and shopping at the supermarket. It's a great film, with an iconic performance from Caine. A film that stands up to repeated viewings. There are no interesting extras on this disc, only the original trailer.

The Eagle Has Landed (1976) Here Caine play a Nazi who brings a small team of Germans to England to kidnap Winston Churchill. This film features many famous actors, including Robert Duvall, Donald Sutherland (with a poor Irish accent), the very lovely Jenny Agutter, and Donald Pleasence doing a portrayal of Heinrich Himmler which I doubt anyone will ever top. There are no extras on this disc.

Educating Rita (1983) One of Caine's best ever performances. Julie Walters is fantastic too as student Rita. This was mainly filmed at the beautiful Trinity College (well worth a visit if you're in Dublin). The only extras here are the original UK and US trailers.

The Forth Protocol (1987) Here KGB agent Pierce Brosnan arrives in England with orders to blow up an airforce base - it's up to British agent Caine to stop him. Like The Ipcress File, this film also shows the unglamorous side of being a secret agent - we see Caine travelling on the London Underground and flying a model aeroplane with his son. This is not one of Caine's best films, but enjoyable nonetheless. Extras on the disc are a trailer and an interesting 28 minute "making of" documentary.

The Ipcress File is the real stand out film in this box-set, closely followed by Educating Rita. The rest of them are fairly average, there are many much better Caine films that could have been pooled together. However chances are most Caine fans will already own most of his classics are are looking through his back catalogue for some of his forgotten roles. This collection is more aimed at them.
Overall entertaining enough but you'd better have a good reason for getting this box-set over this one Michael Caine Collection (Sleuth/The Italian Job/Alfie/Zulu/Funeral in Berlin) [DVD] [1978]

Micheal Caine at his best, The Fourth Protocol with Brosnan,and The Eagle has Landed with a great cast, adventure and excitement all the way, The Ipcress File the same but showing it's age. Without a Clue, with Ben Kingsly, more than a laugh a minute, they must have enjoyed making it. Educating Rita well they can be forgiven one "make weight" in a set,
Well worth the money.

Michael Caine stands out from the crowd - as usual.
Whatever character he plays seems real, and in this entertaining bunch of old movies you get full value for your money, and much more.
Old, yes, but well made and timeless.

A great box of vintage Michael Caine movies. The stories span more than 20 years, from pop culture, over iron curtain espionage to humoresque. Good quality sound and picture.

Good value for money - quality as expected for the age of the films - sometimes the lesser than current quality adds to the atmosphere
