The 32 Year Old James Mason, 29 October 2003
Author: Single-Black-Male from London, England

He had a mellifluous voice and a debonair manner in his delivery. Although he was trapped in only acting in British films at this stage in his career, James Mason demonstrated that he could carry a 90 minute film on his shoulders.
