During this time he established a distinctive visual style wearing thick horn-rimmed glasses combined with sharp suits and a laconic vocal delivery; he was recognised as a style icon of the 1960s. He solidified his stardom with roles in ''Get Carter'' (1971), ''The Last Valley'' (1971), ''The Man Who Would Be King'' (1975), ''The Eagle Has Landed'' (1976), and ''A Bridge Too Far'' (1977).

His other Oscar-nominated films include ''Alfie'' (1966), ''Sleuth'' (1972), ''Educating Rita'' (1983), and ''The Quiet American'' (2002). Other notable performances include in the films ''California Suite'' (1978), ''Dressed to Kill'' (1980), ''Mona Lisa'' (1986), ''Little Voice'' (1998), ''Quills'' (2000), ''Children of Men'' (2006), ''Harry Brown'' (2009), and ''Youth'' (2015).

Caine is also known for his performance as Ebenezer Scrooge in ''The Muppet Christmas Carol'' (1992), and for his comedic roles in ''Dirty Rotten Scoundrels'' (1988), ''Miss Congeniality'' (2000), ''Austin Powers in Goldmember'' (2002), and ''Secondhand Lions'' (2003). Caine portrayed Alfred Pennyworth in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy (2005–2012). He has also had roles in five other Nolan films: ''The Prestige'' (2006), ''Inception'' (2010), ''Interstellar'' (2014), ''Dunkirk'' (2017), and ''Tenet'' (2020).
