Drumming up some buzz for “The Cider House Rules,” the American Cinematheque is rolling out a 14-film retrospective on “Cider” star Michael Caine.
Running Friday through Dec. 23 at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater and Gotham’s The Screening Room, showcase will feature all four pics for which Caine received Academy Award noms, including 1986’s “Hannah and Her Sisters.” Caine won the supporting actor Oscar for that film.
Free events include Saturday and Sunday screenings of “The Man Who Would Be Caine!” — an hourlong interview taped especially for the fest featuring Caine reminiscing about his 35 years in the biz.
Also in the fest lineup are fresh 35mm prints of “The Italian Job” (1969) pairing Caine with Noel Coward and Benny Hill and “Get Carter” (1971), which will soon be remade with Sylvester Stallone playing Caine’s role.
