Captioned at lower margin: "Professor Bergson (JAMES MASON) and his wife Ariel (PATRICIA NEAL) comfort each other in their attic hideaway while awaiting their destiny in 'The Passage,' a United Artists release." This film, directed by J. Lee Thompson, also starred Anthony Quinn as a Basque mountaineer hired by the U.S. military to guide Professor Bergson and his family over the Pyrenees. Malcolm McDowell co-starred as a Nazi determined to capture the fugitives, which included the Bergson's daughter (played by Kay Lenz). English actorJAMES MASON (1909-1984) earned Oscar nominations for Best Actor for A Star Is Born (1954) and Best Supporting Actor for Georgy Girl (1966) and The Verdict (1982). The versatile Mason could play Brutus (Julius Caesar, 1953), a master spy (North By Northwest, 1959) or a pedophile (Lolita, 1962). In the year of this film, he also appeared in Bloodline, Murder By Decree and The Water Babies and in the made-for-TV movie, Salem's Lot. Among Mason's other notable films are Madame Bovary (1949), The Desert Fox (1951), Prisoner of Zenda (1952) and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954). A leading lady of American plays and film, PATRICIA NEAL (born in 1926) studied drama in college and worked as a model before debuting on Broadway in The Voice of the Turtle (1946). Her performance in the play, Another Part of the Forest, got the attention of Hollywood, and she made her screen debut in a light farce, John Loves Mary, in 1949. That same year she was impressive in The Fountainhead opposite Gary Cooper, whom she later said was the great love of her life. After marrying British writer Roald Dahl in 1953, Neal disappeared from the screen for several years, returning in 1957's A Face in the Crowd, after which she was more selective in choosing her film roles. For her performance in Hud (1963), she won the Best Actress Academy Award. In 1965, Neal suffered a massive series of strokes that left her confined to a wheelchair, semi-paralyzed and nearly unable to speak. Over the next several years, she made a remarkable recovery, returning to the screen in The Subject Was Roses (1968), for which she received another Best Actress Oscar nomination. That year, she was presented with the "Heart of the Year" Award by President Johnson. In the year she made this film, Neal also appeared in the made-for-TV movie, All Quiet on the Western Front. Lightly creased at blank margins, lower left and upper right blank corners chipped away. Minor surface creases (not evident head on). Fine condition.
