Actor- Played the Role of Boris Lafkin

An eccentric professor goes to great lengths to carry out the one experiment he truly has in his heart: the cloning resurrection of his dead wife, who’s been gone for 30 years. Exuding the charm and grace for which he seems to hold the patent, Peter O'Toole plays Doctor Harry Wolper, a renowned research biologist whose pet project is to clone his sorely missed wife, dead now for 30 years. Assisting him in fine fashion are Boris (Vincent Spano), his research assistant, whose love interest is fellow student Barbara (Virgina Madsen) and Meli (Mariel Hemingway), a self-proclaimed 19-year-old nymphomaniac bent on capturing the affections of Dr. Wolper. This sweet and enjoyable romantic comedy is brought to a head when Madsen’s character drops suddenly into a coma. Then it is Spano’s acceptance of reality that helps shift O’Toole’s shaky delusion of trying to play God. Wolper's nemesis, played by David Ogden Stiers, also thwarts his cloning attempts by reclaiming the stolen equipment he's using to do so. While Dr. Wolper preaches the beauty of The Big Picture as a way of apprehending life, one can be content with the many smaller pleasures this delightful picture affords.
