Thumbs up Headlights-The Case of the Disappearing Highbeam

1970 280S W108.....
When the headlight switch is activated, both the left and right side low beams come on as they should. When I activate the highbeam stalk, the left side headlights display both low and high beams as they should but the right side not only shows no highbeam but the low beam goes out too. Do I maybe have a sick relay or something? Any help is appreciated and thanked for in advance
