Not Rated | | Drama, Horror
A surgeon causes an accident which leaves his daughter disfigured, and goes to extremes to give her a new face.
Although the film passed European censors upon its original release in 1960, the film's disturbing facial surgery scene still caused controversy.
Smile. Smile. Not too much.
When she's not wearing it, Christiane's mask is very thick and heavy and would only seem to cover her face. When she puts it on, however, it is very thin, close-fitting, and seamlessly covers her jawline and the underside of her chin, revealing that the mask itself is a prop while the actress probably wears a combination of makeup and prosthetics.
The film was re-released to US theaters completely uncut and under its original title on October, 31st 2003.
