James Neville Mason (15 May 190927 July 1984) was an English actor who attained stardom in both British and American films. He acted in such films as Madame Bovary (1949),The Tell-Tale Heart[1] (1953) (animated short subject) (voice), 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), North by Northwest (1959), The Trials of Oscar Wilde (1960), Lolita (1962) and Mandingo (1975).

To me the man is remembered by his voice, there are even spoken word albums by him. Listen to it in the Youtube clip of The Tell-Tale Heart[2], the cinematic animated adaptation of Poe's story about the compulsion to confess, a psychological complex first described by Theodor Reik in The Compulsion to Confess in 1925.
