#Marks / Signs
1Deep mellifluous voice
2Sophisticated upper-class demeanor


1[on The Man Between (1953)] This film became very big on television in the U.S. In the cinema one demands of a thriller that the narrative thread be ever taut. The American televiewer makes no such demands since continuity is destined to be shattered by commercial interruption. Thus it often happens that what has been hitherto regarded as a failure in the cinemas will be a hit on the Late Late Show and vice versa.
2[on The Man in Grey (1943) in 1974] The great theatre critic James Agate, who was then writing in films, sensibly headed his review "Bosh and Tosh."
3[on The Seventh Veil (1945) in 1974] This was Sydney Box's and Ann Todd's film. But director Compton Bennett and I also profited from its success. 'Welcome' mats were spread out for us in Hollywood.
4[on Candlelight in Algeria (1944) in 1974] This film topped the popularity polls in Bulgaria one or more of the immediately post-war years. I, who saw the film, find this interesting.
5[on his independent production of "Charade"] I had hoped that this curiosity would be lost without trace.
6It has always seemed to me the height of audacity to write an autobiography unless, of course the author has made a contribution to history.
7[on his only meeting with Ronald Reagan] I only met Reagan once, at a time when I was just fading from Hollywood. I bumped into him at a jewelry store and took the liberty of introducing myself - under the guise of congratulating him on becoming Governor of California. He was very charming.
8Though it is hard for anyone familiar with the current television scene to imagine, the early days of television in the United States were really exciting.
9To be a successful film star, as opposed to a successful film actor, you should settle for an image and polish it forever. I somehow could never quite bring myself to do that.
10[from his eulogy for Judy Garland] I traveled in her orbit only for a little while but it was an exciting while, and one during which it seemed that the joys in her life outbalanced the miseries. The little girl whom I knew, who had a little curl in the middle of her forehead, when she was good she was not only very, very good, she was the most sympathetic, the funniest, the sharpest and the most stimulating woman I ever knew. She was a lady who gave so much and richly, both to her vast audience who she entertained and to the friends around her whom she loved, that there was no currency in which to repay her. And she needed to be repaid, she needed devotion and love beyond the resources of any of us.
11The trouble with Hollywood is that the producers and agents are the aristocrats... which made actors who make their living in Hollywood usually feel they are some sort of scum. They looked for other means of showing off and were great on rallies for political candidates.
12[on Louella Parsons] Not a bad old slob.
13[on Rudolph Valentino] That Valentino was certainly a very splendid fellow. And his unique glamor was not entirely due to the fact that he was unhampered by banal dialogue. Modern dialogue is not always banal, and the screen hero who could match Valentino's posturing technique with an equally polished vocal technique has a perfectly fair chance of becoming his romantic peer. It was his magnetism and dignity that assured him a peak of magnificent isolation.
14Walter Wanger was a man who always wanted to be European. He didn't know how to be European but he wanted to be European, so The Reckless Moment (1949) was rather the kind of film - I suppose, like Brief Encounter (1945) - that he was trying to make, but it wasn't very good.
15[on Raquel Welch] I have never met someone so badly behaved.
16I loved Max Ophüls because he had a very unsuccessful career as far as America was concerned, but he had an irrepressible spirit. He was a brave, resilient man and a great man of theatre and he loved his work, he had an undying enthusiasm. He was a lovely man.
17[on Max Ophüls] I think I know the reason why producers tend to make him cry. Inevitably, they demand some stationary set-ups, and a shot that does not call for tracks is agony for dear poor Max, who, separated from his dolly, is wrapped in deepest melancholy. Once, when they took away his crane, I thought he'd never smile again...
18[on Bette Davis] The greatest actress of all time.
19[on Judy Garland] In some of her films she showed talent which was very comic and touching. Touching because she played with a bright smile and a great spirit, while the situation was rather dramatic, even tragic perhaps. She had in fact a quality which can only be compared to Charles Chaplin's heartbreaking quality: always optimistic, always gay, always inventive, against poverty, against desperate situations - and that's when Judy is at her best.
20[on Alfred Hitchcock] You can see from the way he uses actors that he sees them as animated props. He casts his films very, very carefully and he knows perfectly well in advance that all the actors that he chooses are perfectly capable of playing the parts he gives them, without any special directorial effort on his part. He gets some sort of a charge out of directing the leading ladies, I think, but that's something else.
21Having been fascinated by the Alan Ladd phenomenon, I now had the opportunity to study it at close quarters. It turned out that he had the exquisite coordination and rhythm of an athlete, which made it a pleasure to watch him when he was being at all physical.
22[on Joseph L. Mankiewicz] A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and All About Eve (1950) were marvelous films. I thought that the last good film he made was 5 Fingers (1952), because personally I have not seen a Mankiewicz film that appeared to be well-directed since then. For instance, Cleopatra (1963) was a hideous film but nevertheless you could see that it had some good, well-written scenes and the director had not served the writer well.
23I purposely would not go and see the old version of Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941). They told me my part was played by Claude Rains, for whom I have an infinite admiration, and I knew I would never be as good as him.
24[on Sir Carol Reed] He was always a director who got as much out of actors as could possibly be gotten. And he could stage individual scenes as well as they could possibly be staged. If he had a weakness, which I admit he has, it was that he didn't have a sufficiently keen story sense.
25[1970 comment on Jean Renoir] He's my style. Renoir's good for actors. Renoir obviously loves actors and understands actors, and La Grande Illusion (1937), which I saw recently, is so modern that it could have been made this year - the acting and the staging of it are absolutely modern and true.
26[on not showing up at the 27th Academy Awards, even though he had been nominated as Best Actor for A Star Is Born (1954) and had agreed to go] The Oscar show is always a little better when things go wrong, so I had no need to feel guilty about letting them down.
27I'm a character actor: the public never knows what it's getting by way of a Mason performance from one film to the next. I therefore represent a thoroughly insecure investment.
28How do I wish to be remembered, if at all? I think perhaps just as a fairly desirable sort of character actor.
29[From Bill Fairchild] In a noisy world, he spoke quietly and, yet, his voice will be remembered by millions who never knew him.


1Performed the role of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in two films. First in 1951 with "The Desert Fox" and followed in 1953 with "The Desert Rats".
2Reportedly, he once saved the life of Max Bygraves' son Patrick. Max Bygraves and his son were at a party at Judy Garland's house. Patrick fell into the pool and Max didn't notice. James Mason did and, fully clothed, he jumped into the water and pulled Patrick out.
3Mason admitted to journalists that he had only taken a part in Mandingo (1975) because he was behind with alimony payments, leading critic Roger Ebert to reply, 'surely jail would have been better'.
4Critic Vincent Canby said about Mason: "He is, in fact, one of the very few film actors worth taking the trouble to see even when the film that encase him is so much cement".
5Mason's daughter Portland was named for comedian Fred Allen's wife.
6Although somehow he was never given a much-deserved knighthood, he was awarded the Golden Seal, England's most prestigious film honor.
7Was able to do uncanny impressions of John Gielgud and Gabriel Pascal.
8Mason and wife Pamela were cat lovers and collaborated on a book on their cats.
9Stated that the reason he could not find a publisher for his autobiography, "Before I Forget" was because his memoir was "... too polite.".
10Although Mason's son Morgan is a film producer, he did work in the Reagan White House.
11The actor thought the 1937 Janet Gaynor/Fredric March version of "A Star Is Born" was superior to his and Garland's because the musical numbers detracted from the story.
12In a January 6, 1947 "Life" magazine article Mason claimed he preferred jazz and Duke Ellington to classical music and his favorite stars were Spencer Tracy, Jean Gabin, Lena Horne, Carmen Miranda, and Veronica Lake.
13Mason had committed to recreating his role for the TV pilot of "The Verdict," but his death caused the project to be abandoned.
14James and Pamela Mason arrived in the U.S. in November, 1946, but he became embroiled in a legal battle with David E, Rose, who claimed the actor had agreed to form a production company with him. After eighteen months Mason eventually won the case.
15Mason's first screen appearance in "The Private Life of Don Juan," was the last for its star, Douglas Fairbanks although the fledgling actor was replaced after several days work because he was unsuitably cast.
16Mason insisted that all biographical information in Clive Hirschhorn's book, "The Films of James Mason," even the introductory notes. He wouldn't even allow his birth date to be used.
17Following his death, he was interred at Corvey-Sur-Vevey Cemetery in Corvey-Sur-Vevey, Switzerland.
18Was among the various actors in the running for the role of Hans Fallanda in the science fiction horror film Lifeforce (1985); Frank Finlay won the role.
19Mason was set to make his screen debut in The Private Life of Don Juan (1934), Douglas Fairbanks' final film, but was replaced after four days supposedly because of unsuitable casting.
20At Liza Minnelli's request, Mason read the eulogy at Judy Garland's funeral.
21Mason lived with future wife Pamela Kellino and husband Roy, and even after Mason married her, Kellino continued to live with them.
22He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6821 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 8, 1960.
23Reportedly, he once saved the life of Max Bygraves' son Anthony. Max Bygraves and his son Anthony were at a party at Judy Garland's house. Anthony fell into the pool and Max did not notice. James Mason did notice and, fully clothed, he jumped into the water and pulled Anthony out.
24Grandfather of actor James Duke Mason.
25He suffered a severe heart attack in 1959.
26He refused to wear make-up.
2711 years after being mentioned in Rope (1948) as making an excellent villain, he was finally cast by Alfred Hitchcock as such in North by Northwest (1959).
28Was offered the role of Viktor Komarovsky in Doctor Zhivago (1965) by double-Oscar winning director David Lean after Marlon Brando failed to respond to director Lean's written inquiry into whether he wanted to play the role. Mason initially accepted the role. Lean decided on Mason, who was a generation older than Brando, as he did not want an actor who would overpower the character of Yuri Zhivago (specifically, to show Zhivago up as a lover of Lara, who would be played by the young Julie Christie, which the charismatic Brando might have done, shifting the sympathy of the audience). Mason eventually dropped out and Rod Steiger, who had just won the Silver Bear as Best Actor for his role as the eponymous The Pawnbroker (1964), accepted the role.
29Eddie Izzard often uses an impression of James Mason in his stand-up comedy routines as the voice of a confused, dithering God.
30Was rejected by fellow student Alistair Cooke for an acting role whilst at Cambridge. Cooke asked Mason what course he was studying. "Architecture", replied Mason. "Then I think you should finish your degree and forget about acting." advised Cooke, in one of his rare lapses of judgment.
31Was the original choice to play Professor Kingsfield in The Paper Chase (1973), but had to turn down the role due to poor health. John Houseman, who had acted in only one other movie in a small role, was cast and won an Oscar.
32Can be seen visiting the set of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980) in Vivian Kubrick's TV documentary Making 'The Shining' (1980). Stanley Kubrick did not usually allow visitors to his set, but made an exception for Mason, who had memorably played Humbert Humbert for him in Lolita (1962).
33Told Playboy magazine in the late 1970s that he hated rock 'n' roll but loved country music.
34He was offered the role of Lawyer Crosby in the horror film The Cat and the Canary (1978). However, the gender of the role was changed to female and was played by Wendy Hiller.
35Has starred with his wife Clarissa Kaye-Mason in the original Salem's Lot (1979). They appeared together in the film Age of Consent (1969).
36In 1952 while remodeling his home, he discovered several reels of Buster Keaton's "lost" films (Mason had purchased Keaton's Hollywood mansion) and immediately recognized their historical significance and was responsible for their preservation.
37Turned down the role of Hugo Drax in the James Bond film Moonraker (1979), which went to Michael Lonsdale.
38Was scheduled to play James Bond 007 in a 1958 television adaptation of "From Russia with Love", which was ultimately never produced. Later, despite being in his 50s, Mason was a contender to play Bond in Dr. No (1962) before Sean Connery was cast.
39Was responsible for getting an unknown actor from New Zealand his first major film role. That actor was Sam Neill.
40Father of Morgan Mason and actress/scriptwriter Portland Mason.
41An avowed pacifist, he refused to perform military service during World War II, a stance that caused his family to break with him for many years.
42Had been considered for the role of Harry Lime on the television series The Third Man (1959), but Michael Rennie ended up in the role.
43He should not be confused with the American actor Jim Mason (1889-1959), aka James Mason, who appeared in silent films, particularly Westerns in the 1920s and 1930s.
