      James Mason

      James Mason

      Highest Rated: 100% Five Fingers (1952)

      Lowest Rated: 22% Yellowbeard (1983)

      Birthday: May 15, 1909

      Birthplace: Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, UK

      Gifted with one of the most mellifluous and distinctive voices of his era, James Mason managed to convey volumes of emotion while often remaining surprisingly understated. Following some stage experience and roles in British B-pictures, Mason became a star in his homeland via films like "The Man in Grey" (1943), "The Wicked Lady" (1945), and "Odd Man Out" (1947) and was eventually lured to Hollywood. His performances in "The Desert Fox: The Story of Rommel" (1951), "A Star is Born" (1954), "North by Northwest" (1959), and "Lolita" (1962) ranked amongst his very finest. He also appeared in such projects as "Heaven Can Wait" (1978), "Murder by Decree" (1979), and "The Verdict" (1982), all of which made excellent use of attributes that had long endeared Mason to audiences worldwide. Mason's uniqueness and versatility were his greatest assets and served him well throughout his career, particularly when he aged into being one of the finest character players in cinema.
