Director: Douglas Heyes

MPAA Rating:

An irreducable masterpiece, the Rod Serling-scripted Twilight Zone episode “The Eye of the Beholder” takes place in a hospital in the dead of night. The protagonist is Janet Tyler, who, having been shunned by society because of her hideous ugliness, has just undergone extensive plastic surgery. Knowing full well that she will be shipped off to a community of fellow “outcasts” if the surgery is unsuccessful, Janet tensely awaits the results as the bandages are slowly removed from her face. Even after repeated viewings, this landmark episode loses none of his power and poignancy, with Douglas Heyes’ surehanded direction matched by Bernard Herrmann’s brilliant musical score. First telecast November 11, 1960, “The Eye of the Beholder” was rerun in the summer of 1962 — when, to avoid tipping off the punch line, the episode reverted to its working title, “A Private World of Darkness.
