Based on the novel Alfie by Bill Naughton, Michael Caine stars as the title character, a womaniser out to have a good time with a different girl every night of the week. His live-in girlfriend Gilda (Julia Foster) becomes pregnant by him but Alfie, unable to face up to this responsibility, escapes to the country. Alfie continues to engage in sexual affairs with a variety of women: millionairess Ruby (Shelley Winters), young runaway Siddie (Millicent Martin), and eventually his friend's wife, Lily (Vivien Merchant). The good times seem endless until misfortune strikes and Alfie is forced to face the product of his reckless debauchery.
