Twilight Zone Fifth Season

"Mr. Jason Foster, a tired ancient who on this particular Mardi Gras evening will leave the earth. But before departing he has some things to do, some services to perform, some debts to pay - and some justice to mete out. This is New Orleans, Mardi Gras time. It is also the Twilight Zone."

Jason Foster, knowing he is dying, summons his heirs to a Mardi Gras party. He gives each a grotesque mask that reflects their true nature. Fearing they'll be disinherited, they put on the masks. At midnight Jason dies, his family, glad he is gone, removes their masks. To their horror, they discover their faces are permanently disfigured; each matches the masks they were wearing.

"Mardi Gras incident, the dramatis personae being four people who came to celebrate and in a sense let themselves go. This they did with a vengeance. They now wear the faces of all that was inside them - and they'll wear them for the rest of their lives, said lives now to be spent in shadow. Tonight's tale of men, the macabre and masks - on the Twilight Zone."
