This film is composed of three shorts, each involving a painting of a woman. In the first section, entitled "The Cemetery," a young man (Roddy McDowall) is hypnotized by a picture, with murderous results. Next, in "Eyes," an affluent blind woman (Joan Crawford) goes to devious lengths in order to see for one day. Lastly, in "The Escape Route," a former Nazi (Richard Kiley) is being hunted for his past crimes. In a supernatural attempt to avoid capture, he morphs into a gallery painting.
