The Picture of Dorian Gray
When Dorian Gray, a handsome, young Victorian gentleman obsessed with the fleeting transience of his own beauty, becomes disturbed by a portrait that seems to capture too much of his soul, he makes a dark pact: He will remain forever young, while the age, disease and decay that should affect his body ravage The Picture of Dorian Gray. Over the years, Dorian Gray (Hurd Hatfield) revels in every imaginable pleasure and experience--altruistic, decadent or evil--while somehow maintaining his youthful beauty even as the painting, locked away in a dark room, reveals an increasingly decaying, corrupt, aging visage. Although Gray may be able to avoid the ravages of time, he cannot escape the wrath of people he wrongs over the years. And when his one lethal weakness is finally discovered, Gray pays for all his evils in a shocking climax.
