"The Clone"

"The Clone" (screenplay) is a slightly futuristic twist on the Oscar Wylde novel: "The Picture of Dorian Gray" where a clone, not a portrait, provides a glimpse into the soul of a man who could use another for spare body parts.

Tom Gray humbly provides organs and tissue to help his genetic donor remain in good health. This is the highest level of service a clone can aspire to. The donors are important enough to the world stage to require such dedication. Only Tom Gray discovers he is not a clone. And his genetic donor is not so noble after all...

Here is a review from the website:

Re: "The Clone" (revised)


This is my first cloning script and was quite an eye-opener. The writer has beautifully imagined a world with a hospital complex that houses the clones who are kept ready at all times to donate organs as needed. What a concept! Your sympathy really goes out to the clones and not to the off-putting originals. With that as background, we meet a fascinating character who THINKS he's just a clone. He's already given up several organs but he is actually the original. So the script delights us with a story that must right this wrong and put the true original back in his proper place. It is a fascinating script. The writing is professional in every category. The dialogue is crisp. The action descriptions are terse. And reading it is like greased lightning. I highly recommend the story to anyone and wish the writer good luck in finding a producer. It should'nt take long. Dick Keith -- July 14, 2005 - 8:11 PM
