Rather preposterous...
18 February 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, an esteemed plastic surgeon (Charles Boyer) is on a glamorous cruise. There a countess introduces herself and spends most of her time with him during the voyage. However, instead of the talk being about romance or the usual small talk, she seems intent on talking about his work...and she obviously has some ulterior motive. When the ship arrives at port, she invites him home and he goes--mostly to discover WHY. The answer, however, is totally ludicrous--she wants him to make her look hideous and disfigured!!! Why?! What's this all about....and I'll say no more because I don't want to spoil the show...even though the episode really is silly.

Overall, this one features nice acting and a dopey script. Together, it makes for an episode that is possibly worth seeing, but only for curiosity's sake...and you can by downloading it for free from archive.org--a site often linked to IMDb pages.
