4 disc box-set featuring classic James Mason movies. '5 Fingers' (1952) is a World War 2 espionage thriller based on the real-life memoirs of L.C. 'Cicero' Moyzisch. Mason is the anti-hero protagonist, a man known to his superiors only by the code-name Cicero. Outwardly the efficient and discreet valet of the British Ambassador to Ankara in Turkey, he is in fact acting as a ruthless spy, photographing top-secret documents detailing plans for the D-Day invasion and selling them to the highest bidder - which just happens to be the Nazi government. 'The Man Between' (1953) is set prior to the end of the Cold War and Mason stars as a sardonic double agent. He finds himself falling in love with the beautiful and very British Claire Bloom while dogged by the pressures of political espionage and the attentions of his Cold War counterpart, Hildegard Neff. In 'The Man In Grey' (1943) Clarissa befriends impoverished stunner Hesther who then repays her friendship by trying to steal Clarissa's evil husband. An all-star cast (Margaret Lockwood, Mason, Phyllis Calvert and Stewart Granger) bring this elaborate, romantic, melodramatic costume drama to life.In 'Odd Man Out' (1946) Mason plays a hitman in a tense, atmospheric thriller from the director of 'The Third Man'. Johnny (James Mason) is the idealistic leader of an illegal organisation on the run after escaping from prison. An attempt to hold up a linen mill goes wrong and Johnny is badly wounded. As the police hunt him down, Johnny searches for Kathleen, the woman who loves him.

An excellent collection of James Mason films from the 40's and 50's.
It includes "ODD MAN OUT", brilliantly directed by Carol Reed and one of the all-time-great British movies, in which Mason plays an injured IRA gunman on the run in Belfast.
Then there is "THE MAN BETWEEN" (set in cold-war Berlin), "THE BELLS GO DOWN" (a story of fire-fighters in the London Blitz), "THE MAN IN GREY" (a Regency melodrama), and "FIVE FINGERS" (a 2nd World War spy story based on true events).
Along with their other merits, the first three of these movies are interesting historical documents, with a wealth of location footage. There are also two interesting bonus items: a documentary narrated by James Mason about his return to Huddersfield (the town of his birth), and some unedited takes of a TV interview.
A consummate professional, and certainly one of the greatest British film actors of his generation, James Mason is always a joy to watch, and no more so than in this collection.
Five stars and no doubt about it!

four out of five good movies 22 Jun 2012
By Jay Holder - Published on

This was a good buy when one considers what each film would cost indivually. The Bells Go Down seemed to be thrown in for filler. It was somewhat entertaining, but not as good as the other films.
