Michael Caine has made more than 70 films in his 30-year career, playing everything from the cockney lothario in Alfie to the super-suave con man in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. He won an Oscar for his work in Hannah and Her Sisters. He says that while an actor's eyes are his best asset, his voice is a close second. This interview originally aired on Nov. 17, 1992.
