James Mason was one of the greatest actors of his generation. The British-born actor noted for portraying suave and cerebral aristocrats and scoundrels in more than 100 films over nearly half a century. He achieved considerable success in British cinema before becoming a star in Hollywood. He was the top box-office attraction in the UK in 1944 and 1945; his British films included The Seventh Veil (1945) and The Wicked Lady (1945). He starred in Odd Man Out (1947), the first recipient of the BAFTA Award for Best British Film. In the U.S. Mason starred in such films as George Cukor's A Star Is Born (1954), Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959), Stanley Kubrick's Lolita (1962), Warren Beatty's Heaven Can Wait (1978), and Sidney Lumet's The Verdict (1982). He also starred in a number of successful British and American films from the 1950s to the early 1980s, including: The Desert Fox (1951), Julius Caesar (1953), Bigger Than Life (1956), 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959), Georgy Girl (1966), and The Boys from Brazil (1978). Mason was nominated for three Academy Awards, three Golden Globes (winning the Golden Globe in 1955 for A Star is Born) and two BAFTA Awards throughout his career.
In 1964, Mason filed for divorce, alleging infidelity on his wife’s part. However, it was Pamela Mason who emerged victorious in the end, winning such a large settlement that he was effectively wiped out. In need of money, Mason agreed to appear in some less than stellar films in the years that followed, but also continued to operate at the height of his craft in more ambitious fare like the historical adventure “Lord Jim” (1965) and the hit romantic comedy “Georgy Girl” (1966), for which he earned a second Oscar nomination.
