Wow.  Was JAMES MASON a wonderful actor taking thankless roles or what? 

I just saw parts of A STAR IS BORN which is a JUDY GARLAND flick, but JAMES MASON's tragic portrayal really carries that film and makes it still worthwhile.  I watched JAMES MASON in a flick called FIVE FINGERS repeatedly, on FXM, and THAT was wonderful too.  In that one he plays a spying mercenary crumb.  Great British actors don't seem to have been as worried about their reputations as American actors...

I'd say he had some courage: he wasn't afraid to play a child molester.

JAMES MASON played an important role in my brother David's favorite film, LORD JIM, a thing I've yet to sit all the way through...  Lookingup  And
I know well about it and probably have seen those few parts I have over the years on TCM because of JAMES MASON

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I love James Mason.  JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH is one of my most-watched movies of all time.  One of my favorite Mason performances is in THE VERDICT.  And when I want James Mason hilarity, I watch either MANDINGO or COLD SWEAT and listen to his awful accents.
