Lots 141, 142, 143-148 and 150 are from the collection of Michael Caine's stuntman-double John Morris. Morris began work in the film industry as an electrician in the 1950s, lighting the sets, a director spotted him and asked him to do some work in front of the camera instead and his career as a stuntman-double began. Morris doubled for a number of stars including George Segal and then John Lennon in both Beatles' films. He first worked with Michael Caine in 1965 on The Ipcress File and then stayed exclusively with Caine for the next fourteen years between 1965-1979 co-ordinating stunts and standing in for Caine in numerous films including The Harry Palmer trilogy, Alfie, The Italian Job and Get Carter. An inscription from Caine to Morris written on the reverse of a still of the two men on the set of The Ipcress File demonstrates the high esteem in which Caine held him "So far John you've been marvellous and I'm sure you always will be, let's hope we can stay together, Mike"
