Looking for movie: B&W British (?) horror b-movie about a creepy wealthy eccentric that tries to buy a younger man's transplanted face

Looking for a a black & white horror movie from the 50s or 60s that had to do with an older eccentric creepy rich man who tried to convince a younger man to sell him his face to be surgically substituted for his own.  It was a British production I believe, and It was "public domain".

A lot of the movie from what I saw was mostly dialogue driven and in mostly one location, this character making ridiculous desperate justifications to convince this younger man the benefits of swapping his face while doing things to keep him trapped at his macabre mansion while the younger man is trying everything in his power to remain composed and come off polite while trying to find an excuse to leave. The creepy wealthy man kept continuously outsmarting him and calling his bluff regardless of what the young man desperately tried to muster up while running out of ideas.  I'm not sure about this detail but he may have wanted to buy his hands as well. In fact, it might have started out trying to buy his hands, and then progressed to trying to convince him to might as well sell his face too (memory is foggy though, I could be wrong).

About a year ago, I saw it on either a public access station airing of an old "horror host" show from the 2000s (either "The Dungeon of Dr. Dreck" or "Cheese Theater", or it could have been the current west coast "Creature Features"), or it could have been a youtube upload from "PizzaFlix", or just a random youtube upload that auto played after I watched something else. I'm leaning toward it being a public access station's stream that i was watching most likely. Nonetheless, I think the stream cut out and I ended up not watching the whole thing.

These are previous suggestions from other posts I made elsewhere that were ruled out:

The Trade-Ins (Twilight Zone episode)

Seconds (movie)

The Switch (Tales From the Crypt episode)

Please help! 🙏

This post should not have been marked as "Answered." The original poster has not yet confirmed that any of the suggested movies is the correct one.
