A vain Victorian man fantastically transfers his mortality onto a painting of himself, which proceeds to age for him, while he remains young and handsome. But as his visage remains beautifully preserved, his heart and soul decay. An adaptation of the Oscar Wilde novel. Angela Lansbury was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar as a jilted dance-hall performer.
