What is the name of the b&w movie that has an ugly female who wears a Halloween beauty mask and becomes beautiful?  Thx

Hi Lucy,  Thanks for your question. I'm pleased to say it's one I can answer easily, since it's always been one of my favorite "fantasy" films, from Universal Pictures,…the 1943 movie, "Flesh and Fantasy".  It consisted of three separate stories, with different stars in each,…and the one you've asked about was the First story, starring Robert Cummings and Betty field, two popular film stars of the 40's.  (believe it or not, I saw it as a small child, and that first segment,…with its masks, etc.,…. made an impression on me.

It's available on DVD at :
