American Short Story Collection: Rappaccini's Daughter
With an introduction by Henry Fonda, this version of Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story, set in 18th-century Italy, tells of botanist Dr. Rappaccini (Leonardo Cimino), who has weaned his beautiful daughter (Kathleen Beller) on poison so she can help him with his plant experiments. However, in so doing, he's made it impossible for her to have physical contact with humans ... until a handsome student (Kristoffer Tabori) moves next door.
