Biography by Hal Erickson

British director Herbert Mason launched his screen career with 1936's His Lordship. More prolific than inspired, Mason helmed such medium-budgeters as Strange Borders (1938), Back Room Boy (1941) and Flight from Folly (1945). His best-remembered effort was the compact little mystery A Window in London (1945). Herbert Mason spent his last active decade as a producer; his 1950s credits include Time Gentlemen Time (1952), Background (1953) and Cast a Dark Shadow (1957).
