Sir Michael Caine was spotted filming on the beach at Camber Sands

SIR Michael Caine was spotted on a Sussex beach before his final film appearance.

The Italian Job and Batman star starred as Hove veteran Bernard Jordan on Camber Sands in Rye before starring in The Great Escaper.

Bernard escaped his nursing home in Furze Hill to attend the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France in 2014.

He became a national sensation after sparking a missing persons search when he left the nursing home unannounced for the memorial services

Bernard was a longtime councilman and former mayor.

Michael, 89, was seen in a wheelchair on Camber beach and on a street decorated with bunting for filming.

The veteran movie star wore a flat cap and medals.

In the film, he is reunited with actress Glenda Jackson, 86, as Bernard’s wife Irene, 47 years after they starred in The Romantic Englishwoman.

War hero Bernard, who made headlines around the world and received thousands of cards after fleeing his nursing home, died in 2015 at the age of 90.

In July 2014 he was made Honorary Councilor for the City in recognition of his 23 years of service as Borough Councilor for Hove and his service as Mayor 1995-1996.

A summary of the new film says: “It was a story that captured the world’s imagination – Bernie seemed to embody the defiant, ‘I can’ spirit of a generation that was quickly disappearing.

“But of course it wasn’t the whole story. It was the story we all tell ourselves to make war and old age bearable. The bittersweet screenplay explores reality with wit and a very big heart.

“Bernie’s adventure, which lasted just 48 hours, also marked the culmination of his 60-year marriage to Rene (Jackson) – the story celebrates their love without sentimentality and with an eye on the lessons we could all learn from the Greatest Generation.” .”
