Well, the epitome of cool is Cary Grant of course but it was a clash of titans when the two were onscreen together in North By Northwest. Mason had to be cool to put up with Pamela as long as he did. I remember when she had a talk show up here in Canada and the words "man hating witch" comes to mind. Of course that seems to have been shortly after her divorce so...

I remember an old ramp-f thread about alternate castings, and someone stated "James Mason would have been a great Hannibal Lecter." I would have never thought of that, but damned if they aren't right.
