disfigured faces: The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone

Okay, this is a cheat – it’s not the nurse who is disfigured but her patient.

In the episode ‘The Eye of the Beholder’ a young woman is forced to undergo experimental treatments in an attempt to make her appear ‘normal’. But when the bandages are removed the nurse (Jennifer Howard) recoils in horror – to her Janet remains hideously disfigured, but then we see the nurse’s face.

Ive been unable to find a contemporary image of Jennifer Howard; if anyone can help, please email themakeupgallery.

The makeup

William Tuttle was credited for this classic makeup but I am informed that it was Charles Schram who did all the prosthetics.

Peter Montagna recreated the makeup on the Premiere Products stand at the 2004 IMATS.
