I want to thank all the Gods and baby Jesus: James Mason edition.


Ava Gardner and James Mason - East Side, West Side (1949)

“It’s all right Bran, what difference does it make, today or another day … there’s no hurry, you’ll be back. (he slaps her)   That’s better, isn’t it Bran?  That’s what you don’t get at home.  That’s what you’ve been missing, isn’t it?  It’s so tiresome being restrained and soft-spoken and gentlemanly.  What you really want is to be a little rotten, like me.”
