The Twilight Zone

I was over at my sisters house last night and she showed me some episodes of the Twilight Zone, This one one of my fave episodes..

Twilight Zone: "The Eye of the Beholder"
Season 2, Episode 6
First aired: November 11, 1960

Starring Maxine Stuart, Donna Douglas, William D. Gordon, Edson Stroll, Jennifer Howard, George Keymas and Joanna Heyes. Written by Rod Serling. Directed by Douglas Heyes.

It’s a rather simple story of a young woman who has undergone a recent plastic surgery procedure to correct her grotesque visage, and is recovering in a hospital anxiously awaiting the removal of her bandages, which is where the big twist occurs. Up until that point, her face remains covered and (mostly by theatrical and technical tricks) so do the faces of her doctor and nurses. When her bandages are removed the doctor exclaims, “No change, no change at all!” yet we see she bears a perfectly normal and quite beautiful face. What could be wrong? That is quickly answered when the doctor pulls off his surgical mask to reveal a hideously malformed nose and mouth. The nurses possess those same features.
