The "beauty" is talented painter Alix Miller. Her father, Alexander, is scheduled to go to the isolated Crompton mansion in New Hampshire to paint a family portrait of the mysterious, reclusive author Lee Crompton, but he falls ill and cannot. Alix decides to take his place. Much to her shock, Lee is horribly disfigured from a disease called acromegaly. Still, she has an obligation and so goes on with the painting. But as time goes on, they finds themselves increasingly drawn romantically to each other, despite the enigmatic Lee's own fears.

To our friend Leyland Crompton, who's bravery and determination saved the life of Tommy Harris, your greatful neighbours.
[Lee looks at the plaque and drops it worthlessly on his desk
Why can't you let them thank you Lee?
What do you think i would be to them Alix, a romantic folk hero? Their very own gentle giant? Better they thank a pretty woman and a cute dog than a monster.
