James Mason broke into British films in 1935 after working several years on the stage. For the rest of the decade, he alternated unsuccessful theatre ventures with increasingly important movies. Though he was a conscientious objector, he became one of England's biggest stars during the World War II era. When he moved to Hollywood after the war, success initially eluded him. But he eventually won an Academy Award nomination for A Star is Born (1954) and had steady work as an actor in nearly 50 films between 1963 and his death in 1984. During that time, he earned two additional Oscar nominations and was voted Cinema Actor of the Century by a panel of international critics in 1967. This reference book provides comprehensive coverage of his life and career. The volume begins with a brief biography and chronology, followed by an extensive annotated bibliography of works by and about him. The entries that follow detail his individual performances in film, television, radio, and the stage.

Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER II THE SPANIARD I The man with the wooden leg was still at large, and M. le Procureur Imperial had died a hero's death whilst helping to capture a gang of desperate Chouans in the Cache-Renard woods. This was the public version of the tragic epilogue to those three mysteries, which had puzzled and terrified the countryside during the early days of October, 1809--the robbery of the mail-coach, the burglary in the Palace of Monseigneur the Constitutional Bishop of Alencon, and the murder of Mme. Marquise de Plelan's valet, Maxence. The intelligent section of the public was loud in its condemnation of the ineptitude displayed by the police in the matter of those abominable crimes, and chief commissary Lefevre, bound by oath--not to say terror --to hold his tongue as to the real facts of the case, grumbled in his beard and muttered curses on the accredited representative of the Minister of Police--ay, and on M. le Due d'Otrante himself. On top of all the public unrest and dissatisfaction came the outrage at the house of M. de Kerblay, a noted advocate of the Paris bar and member of the Senate, who owned a small property in the neighbourhood of Alengon, where he spent a couple of months every year with his wife and family, entertaining a few friends during the shooting season. In the morning of November the 6th, the neighbourhood was horrified to hear that on the previous night, shortly after ten o'clock, a party of those ruffianly Chouans had made a descent on M. de Kerblay's house, Les Ormeaux. They had demanded admittance in the name of the law. All the servants had gone to bed with the exception of Hector, M. de Kerblay's valet, and he was so scared that he allowed the scelcrats to push their way into the house, before he had...
