Biographical Notes in German: Mason, den man in der amerikanischen Filmmetropole den 'sanften Sadisten' nannte, war der 'Meister der Psychorollen mit doppeltem Boden' (Kai Niemeyer). Seinen Durchbruch feierte Mason 1946 als irischer Terrorist in Carol Reeds Kinodrama 'Ausgestoßen'. Er faszinierte als zynischer Spion in 'Der Fall Cicero', war romantisch umdüstert als Nemo in der Jules-Verne-Verfilmung ཐ 000 Meilen unter dem Meer', aalglatt in Hitchcocks 'unsichtbarem Dritten', ein opportunistischer Machtmensch in 'Julius Caesar', ein tragischer Verlierer in 'A Star is Born', ein selbstzerstörerisch liebender Humbert Humbert in 'Lolita' oder ein eiskalter Staranwalt in Sidney Lumets Justizkrimi 'The Verdict - Die Wahrheit und nichts als die Wahrheit', um nur eine kleine Auswahl aus seinen mehr als 100 Filmauftritten zwischen 1935 und 1983 zu nennen.
