    Sorry for the off topic, but I’m sure I’ve read that The Caine Mutiny was the inspiration for Michael Caine picking his surname - is that right?

    RIP Mr Wouk

    According to Wikipedia 

     Speaking to his agent from a telephone booth in Leicester Square, London, he looked around for inspiration, noted that The Caine Mutiny was being shown at the Odeon Cinema in 1954, and decided to change his name to "Michael Caine".[25]
