Melissa Gilbert stars in two TV movies this week, this medical drama and a thriller called The Lookalike on the USA Network. Both are dumb, but Donor at least has a scary idea behind it: the notion that hospitals can get away with murder. Gilbert is a young doctor who arrives at a new hospital and discovers widespread corruption and cover-ups. The doctors are conducting grisly experiments on old, indigent patients. The plot is at once terrifying and ludicrous; it would seem impossible that such a hospital could remain open for long, even if the chief of staff is played by Trapper John, M.D., himself, Pernell Roberts. Gilbert walks through the movie with a stiff haughtiness, but there are moments when Donor is unsettling. Looking at this medical butcher shop, you’ll be petrified to enter a hospital ever again. C
