Born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, Michael Caine started his career in the 1950s with small roles in stage plays under the name of Michael Scott. Shortly afterwards however, he was told he needed to change it as there was already an actor by that name. He then adopted the name Michael Caine, which was inspired by the movie The Caine Mutiny

For the rest of the ‘50s and the early’60s, Caine starred in small television and film roles. His first few roles were in classic films such as Alfie, The Ipcress File, and Zulu.
