1 Hirschhorn, Clive; with some second thoughts by James Mason The Films of James Mason
London LSP Books 1975 0-85321-063-2 / 9780853210634 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj 
[light shelfwear to bottom edge, slight dust-soiling to top page edges; jacket shows light wear at corners, a couple of tears and minor paper loss at top of spine]. (B&W photographs) The usual film-by-film rundown, with an introductory biographical essay. What makes this particular "Films of" entry a bit unusual are the actor's own "second thoughts," in the form of his brief commentary (sometimes only a single line) on each film. The book proper ends with MANDINGO, and the book's previous owner has helpfully listed four later titles (through BLOODLINE) on the book's rear free endpaper 
Price: 20.00 USD

2 Hirschhorn, Clive; with some second thoughts by James Mason The Films of James Mason [*SIGNED* association copy]
London LSP Books 1975 0-85321-063-2 / 9780853210634 1st (U.K.) edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dj 
[very nice book, slight wear at spine ends, just the slightest touch of foxing to top edge; jacket has a couple of tiny tears at spine extremities, a couple more at top and bottom edges of rear panel (B&W photographs) INSCRIBED by the great actor on the title page, a personal inscription to director Richard Fleischer and his wife, with reference to their past work together: "For Richard & Mickie / with love from James / (Let's do a third, Dick. But how can we top Mandingo?)" (The previous Fleischer-Mason collaboration had of course been the 1954 Disney classic 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, in which Mason memorably portrayed the tragic scientific genius Captain Nemo. Although the book hews to the usual "films of" format, with a film-by-film rundown prefaced with an introductory biographical essay, what makes this one more than a bit unusual are its incorporation of the actor's own "second thoughts," in the form of his brief commentary (sometimes only a single line) on each film. The book proper ends with MANDINGO -- making Mason's inscription to Fleischer all the more apt. (Despite the sentiment, however, they were not to work together again -- but really, how *would* they have topped MANDINGO for sheer all-out scenery-chewing tastelessness?) Signed by Biographee
