CGiii Comment

Ooooooooh what a horrible character, chauvinistic, mysogynistic, almost likeable - deliciously played by the irrepressible Caine.

The inscrutable Murray Melvin makes an appearance - playing, with relish, his very camp self.

Some call it a classic.

The(ir) Blurb...

For Alfie, the only real life is sex life; only then can he kid himself he is living. Sex is not used as the working-class boy's way to 'the top'. Executive status has no appeal for Alfie. Nor has class mobility. He is quite content to stay where he is, as long as the 'birds' are in 'beautiful condition', as he assures us they are in one of the candid, over-the-shoulder asides to the camera which the film carries over from "Tom Jones". The film shows how much of the 'swinging 60's' quality of London life was a male creation, and through the dominance of the fashion photographers, a male prerogative.
