QUILLS

Two-time Oscar winner MICHAEL CAINE takes a darker turn as the infamous Dr. Royer Collard whose psychological "cure" for the Marquis De Sade may be far worse than his supposed crimes. Caine received his first Academy Award for Woody Allen's "Hannah and Her Sisters" and just won a second for his moving portrayal of a far more humane doctor in Lasse Hallstrom's adaptation of "Cider House Rules."

Caine first made a major impact as an aristocratic officer in "Zulu" in 1964. He became a household name with "Alfie," starring as a Cockney lothario who epitomized swinging London at its zenith. Caine followed this with a trilogy of films about Len Deighton's Harry Palmer, the reluctant spy: "The Ipcress File," "Funeral in Berlin" and "Billion Dollar Brain."

His many memorable film roles have included "Sleuth" with Laurence Oliver; John Huston's "The Man Who Would Be King" with Sean Connery; Richard Attenborough's "A Bridge Too Far"; Brian De Palma's "Dressed to Kill," "Educating Rita" with Julia Walters, Neil Jordan's "Mona Lisa" with Bob Hoskins and Frank Oz's "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" with Steve Martin.

More recently he play a theatre director in "Noise Off," a singing scrooge in "The Muppet Christmas Carol," a safe cracker in "Blood and Wine" with Jack Nicholson, and a would-be producer in "Little Voice."

Caine published his autobiography, What's It All About?, in 1992, and the definitive book Acting on Film, based on his acclaimed master class on BBC television. A restaurateur as well as an actor, Caine is co-owner of Langan's Brasserie, Langan's Bistro, Odin's and The Canteen, Chelsea Harbour. His first American venture is a tropical brasserie in South Beach Miami.

Michael Caine was awarded the CBE in the Queen's Birthday Honors, 1992.
