The Mask

This Gothic-tinged short melodrama packs a cocktail of infidelity, deformity and jealousy into its tale of love gone sour.

Melodrama 1953 28 mins

Director: Don Chaffey


This early effort by Don Chaffey (Jason and the Argonauts) manages to create an nice atmosphere of tension despite the budget limitations. The fact that its authors were a husband and wife writing team adds a piquancy to the story of a woman who plots the murder of her disfigured husband so she can be with her lover.
