"The Doll" is a 2008 film based on a short story by the same name written by author Charles W. Chesnutt, Dante J. James from a screenplay written by James and Joy Kecken. It stars Clayton LeBouef, Monique Brown, Jan Forbes, and Carter Jahncke. Although filmed in Annapolis, Maryland, the original setting for the story is believed to have been Cincinnati, Ohio.

Set in the early 1900s, the film dramatizes an episode in the life of Tom Taylor, proprietor of the Wyandot Hotel barber shop. One day he is confronted with the opportunity to avenge an injustice against his father. He is troubled by whether to choose personal satisfaction over the wellbeing of his family and community.

The musical score was composed and produced by Anthony M. Kelley. Marian Sears Hunter edited it, with production design by Richard Montgomery and Josh Gibson as director of photography.
