->''"How do I wish to be remembered, if at all? I think perhaps just as a fairly desirable sort of character actor."''



Mason was one of the few British stars of his generation without a long career in the stage or formal training as an actor. Indeed, he found greater fame, renown and success as an actor on film than he ever did on stage. He initially began his career making quota quickies in TheThirties, building a steady reputation as a dependable, and highly intelligent, actor who directors and technicians liked. Then in TheForties he appeared in more notable films until achieving his BreakthroughHit with ''The Seventh Veil''. The success of that film brought him to Hollywood and Mason would regularly make films in England, America as well as many other European productions. He was especially famous for his role as Captain Nemo in Disney's adaptation of Jules Verne's classic, as well as the self-destructive Norman Maine in Creator/GeorgeCukor's 1954 version of ''A Star Is Born'' opposite Creator/JudyGarland. Other notable roles include ''Odd Man Out'', ''Literature/{{Lolita}}'' (as Humbert Humbert[[note]]The joke is that Humbert in the book says he would have cast Mason to play him[[/note]]) and as the villain Vandamm in ''Film/NorthByNorthwest''.
