Here's something I've been meaning to clonk in the blog for yonks. A Michael Caine selection..so what's it all about Alfie?
Typically I'm not one for autograph hunting - and unlike Pileys legendary and weighty volumes of celebrity scratchings my collection runs to a can-you-even-call-it-a-collection total of two: a signed summer season programme (Eastbourne '76) with Ray Allen and Cilla's sig's contained therein (BTW she tousled my hair and called me 'chucky egg'. She also wore a fur coat and sunglasses. At Night. In the summer. In Eastbourne). And a George Melly concert ticket - personalised 'yours always'
But, when the unblinking, heavyweight ledge that is Sir Michael of Micklewhite is hosting a biog-signing sesh quite literally around the corner from the office - I'll happily take a place in the queue.
Roy Budd - Get Carter Theme
Quincy Jones - The Self Preservation Society
Nancy Wilson - Alfie
If you're in any way a fan of Get Carter this online tour of the filming locations is well worth a squint
Update: Mike meets Mondo
