Embryo

N.p. Sandy Howard Production, Circa 1974. Two Draft scripts for the 1976 film. One script, a Final Draft, belonging to an auditioning actor, Jenny Sullivan, with her name in holograph ink on the front wrapper; the other script is bound in red faux leather with gilt tiles, a color photograph of a human fetus bound in, and both scripts bear letters from a professor at the University of California describing the possible methods and techniques detailed in the screenplay, and their applicability to contemporary (1974) ethical and legal conditions. Brief annotations on laid-in slips in holograph ink throughout the first script. Laid in is a signed letter from director Nelson to Jenny, informing her that she is a finalist for the role of Victoria (ultimatly the role went to Barbara Carrera).

An exploitation film owing much to "Bride of Frankenstein," as well as the technological advances with DNA in the 1970s. Dr. Paul Holliston (Hudson) is a scientist who discovers a method to accelerate the birth cycle to just a few days. The maturation process has detrimental side effects, and the mature adult, a woman, shows homicidal tendencies.
