This is an excellent biography of the fine British actor James Mason. My only complaint is that it is too short. It was a feast to read, and the writing style of Sheridan Morley (son of another fine British actor, Robert Morley) is elegant and insightful. I learned an awful lot about Mason I didn't know, most surprisingly what a sad man he was. This is a very good piece of work.
Another I read more for the women he worked with, than to learn about the man himself.
