A bachelor pad for Alfie and Michael Caine

Location: 22 St Stephen's Gardens, Bayswater, W2

Description: 'Alfie' is a 1966 British film directed by Lewis Gilbert, starring Michael Caine. It is an adaptation by Bill Naughton of his own novel and play of the same name. The film was released by Paramount Pictures.

Alfie tells the story of a young man who leads a promiscuous lifestyle until several life reversals make him rethink his purposes and goals in life. Alfie frequently breaks the fourth wall by speaking directly to the camera narrating and justifying his actions. His words often contrast and,or totally contradict his actions.

And so to this very spot...

This was the location of Alfie's infamous bachelor pad - which he was to share with many a lady.

Another classic Michael Caine role - in fact - the film broke Michael into the big time and was the turning point in his career.

The film won the Special Jury Prize at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival. It was also nominated for several Academy Awards including Best Actor in a Leading Role (Michael Caine), Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Vivien Merchant), Best Song (Burt Bacharach and Hal David for 'Alfie') (a UK hit record for Cilla Black, but performed by Cher in the movie), Best Picture and Best Writing (Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium).
