on his centennial I try to figure out what I think of Mature. as a kid I knew him from his popular costumers "The Robe" & "The Egyptian." later I discoverd his work in noir. he famously claimd not to be an actor & at the end of his career was happy to spoof himself.
I suspect today he's best rememberd as a reliable leading man to some of the screen's great beauties. & strangely as Hollywood's King of Bondage. from Samson to Zarak his characters were bound & floggd.
& of course for me he's also memorable for having appeard opposite Percy & Bess.
