A BUST in memory of Huddersfield-born film star James Mason has been unveiled in the Swiss village he made his home.
Later this year, it is planned to bring a copy to go on permanent show in Huddersfield.
A party from Switzerland will be bringing a crate of wine named after the actor, who was a noted wine enthusiast.
A friend of Mason said: "The Anglo-Suisse Artistic Foundation will present a cast of the bust to Huddersfield this year and is discussing a suitable location with local officials.
"We intend to bring a very adequate supply of the new James Mason vintage wine to toast the unveiling."
The bronze bust, by Swiss sculptor Denis Perret-Gentil, has been placed in a section of a steeply sloping vineyard in Corseaux, above Vevey on Lake Geneva, which was dedicated to Mason last year.
The spot is near the actor's luxurious home, where he lived for the last 22 years of his life.
He loved to walk from it through the vineyards, stopping to enjoy the spectacular view of the lake and surrounding Alps.
It has been marked with a commemorative plaque and a large explanatory board, in French and English, illustrated with photos and drawings telling Mason's story.
The Marsh-born Hollywood legend had a glittering stage and film career spanning 55 years.
He died in 1984 at the age of 75 and is buried near his Swiss home.
Mason was a wine enthusiast and liked nothing more than to discuss and taste the year's growths with the local winegrowers in their cellars.
To commemorate the relationship, a special James Mason limited edition bottling of Corseaux white wine has been produced.
It comes with a label bearing a self-portrait by Mason, who was a talented artist and cartoonist.
His films included Lolita, A Star is Born, The Prisoner of Zenda, Odd Man Out, North by Northwest and Rommel, Desert Fox.
Mason became Britain's top box office star in the 1940s and once had seven of his films playing at the same time in New York.
