* DistaffCounterpart: Ruby (pictured) is the female counterpart to Alfie, except richer. She's carefree, promiscuous, and ultimately abandons him for another conquest much like he did to many of the women he came onto.

In 1975 there was a sequel of sorts, ''Alfie Darling'', starring Alan Price as Alfie, but the film felt more like a remake than a sequel, what with Alfie being played by a younger man and what not. It is not as highly regarded as the original film.

* TheSociopath: Alfie is very, very, ''very'' detached from people.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of TheCasanova trope that Alfie embodies. He goes about using women in whatever manner pleases him, referring to them as "birds" and sometimes even as "it" until his behavior eventually blows up in his face.

''Alfie'' is a 1966 British film directed by Lewis Gilbert, starring MichaelCaine. It is an adaptation by Bill Naughton of his own [[MovieOfTheBook novel and play of the same name]]. The film was released by Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures.

A remake of the film sporting the same title was released in 2004, starring Jude Law as the title character. The movie was written, directed and produced by Charles Shyer and, again, released by Paramount Pictures.

Both incarnations of the film follow the life of the title character, Alfie Elkins, for a few years, documenting events that lead to his emotional growth, starting with the birth of his child. Alfie, however, is unable to get together with the mother of his son, who moves on herself. Left unable to see his son, he seeks out emotional aid, leading to a series of misadventures as things derail further and he attempts to recover his life.
