Ahhh....James Mason. As someone said "He turned in an R rated performance in a G rated film."
Check out him having a wargasm as he rams a powder ship.
He kisses the seal.
And the sexual undertones of the squid fight.
I can't help but wonder at Kubrick's casting him as Humbert Humbert. His effect on a 12 year old me (having Lolita problems of my own), if I had only known, would have made me scream "Dolly! You idiot ! You walked over him to have ...Peter Sellers ??"
"Hey, he made me laugh, y'know?"
