The Dick Powell Show: Tissue of Hate

For the second straight week, there's a prison background to THE DICK POWELL SHOW. This time, Henry Fonda is a plastic surgeon who gets roped into helping rehabilitate prisoners by fixing up their faces. His big challenge is Polly Bergen, who comes equipped for this show with fearful scars on the left side of her lovely face. They have scarred her soul, of course, as well as her face. The problem is for the two main figures to help each other—he with her deformity, she with his aloofness. Gloria Vanderbilt is Fonda's girl friend.

Dr. Victor Fallon's talents as a plastic surgeon are spent catering to the whims of society ladies and movie stars. Dr Bert Jacobson, an old classmate of Fallon's, draws his patients from another social level.
Jacobson is conducting experiments at a women's prison to see if correcting facial deformities can speed up the rehabilitation of the inmates—and he'd like Fallon's help.
Marc Daniels directed from a script by Tony Barrett. Dean Martin is host for the hour film.
