Yeux sans visage, Les (House of Dr. Rasanoff)



The Professor? No, not yet

I'll tell him as soon as he finishes

Man's greatest new hope

is the recapture of physical youth

This hope... afforded by the heterograft

But the heterograft, that is to say

the transplanting...

...of living tissues or organs

from one human being to another...

...has hitherto been possible

only when the two subjects in question...

...demonstrate a perfect

biological compatibility

What we must now do is modify

the organism receiving foreign tissues

One method is to use heavy

radiation bombardment to destroy...

...the antibodies which form

an obstacle to the heterograft

To achieve this end, however,

the intense radiation required... such that the patient

cannot survive

So exsangunination is practised

The patient under radiation

is drained of the last drop of blood

There was a call for you, Professor

The forensic people... you know,

the morgue. You're to go right away

Your paper was a perfect tonic

Thrilling, wasn't it, Carlo?

What a wonderful future you showed us

As to the future, Madame,

we cannot wait that long

He's changed since his daughter

vanished, he makes strange remarks

It's a strange business,

but that's how it looks to me

Gnessier's daughter vanished

from the clinic, her face an open wound

The lack of facial tissue of course

confirms your supposition

The car crash, the facial burns,

then prolonged immersion in water...

And the rats... don't forget the rats

True. Yet the description

of this drowned girl fits Simone Tessot

I asked the Tessot girl's father

to come in... something doesn't sit right

It's odd that the body should have

been naked but for a man's coat

Why should Gnessier's daughter,

disfigured in a car accident...

...feel the need to strip naked

before drowning herself in her despair?

And that vast open wound

in place of a face is odd, too

The edges are so clean

that it might have been done by a scalpel

Here he is

Doctor Lherminier... Inspector Parot,

from the Missing Persons Bureau

I deeply regret the unfortunate

circumstances occasioning this meeting

Please explain

This morning, two bargemen retrieved

the body of a girl from the Seine

The period of immersion tallies

with your daughter's disappearance

The description also tallies -

facial tissue destroyed,

the eyes undamaged


It is her

Monsieur Tessot is here, Doctor

Tell him we have an identification.

It is not his daughter

I called him in case...

Yes... of course

Forgive me, Professor...

I'm Henri Tessot

I came about my daughter,

but they tell me she was yours

Are you certain, Professor?

Quite certain?

All too certain, unfortunately

It was such a shock when they called me...

I thought I would go mad

It's ten days since we saw Simone.

Something must have happened to her

Strange that I should have to comfort you,

for whom some hope yet remains

I've simply got to find a room

He gets more and more like his father

as he grows older

Remember old Gnessier, the notary?

He wasn't exactly skinny, either

He doesn't enjoy munch luck, anyway

Lost his wife four years ago,

now his daughter

Paris, fame, fortune...

what does it all add up to?

Who's the young man?

The daughter's fianc, a doctor.

He works with the Professor

- And the woman?

- His "secretary". A foreigner

She looks upset

Go home, my boy

- No, let's leave

- I like things done properly

Let's go. I can't take any more

Be quiet!

For my beloved daughter

Doctor Gressier's residence

No admittance to patients

and their visitors

Where did you find this? I don't like
