The Oscar-winning actor was growing up in London at that time.

He has revealed that his father had instructed him to leave his bedroom window open at night to let fresh air in.

The fish was kept in his room because it was the coldest room in the house, he revealed.

“My father, who was very tough, always insisted, ‘You’ve got to be healthy, keep the windows open at night.’ So, even in winter, the windows were always open. It was freezing cold,” Contactmusic quoted Caine as saying.

“My father was a fish market porter and he used to steal fish to feed us. He used to keep the fish in our bedroom because it was the coldest room in the house,” he added.

He also revealed that as a child, he did not know that smoked haddock glows in the dark.

“And one night, I woke up and I yelled because at the end of the bed there’s this ghost. I’m screaming, and my mother came in and said, ‘What’s the matter?’” Caine said

“She turned the lights on and there was a big plate of smoked haddock. And smoked haddock has phosphorous in it and it glows in the dark. I thought it was a ghost, it was smoked haddock,” he added. (ANI)
