Seven Faces of Dr. Lao Reviews
Director/animator George Pal held the reins here, and it had a bit of a Harryhausen feel to some of the animated sequences. While all the cast is satisfactory, Tony Randall really impressed me with his performance...or should I say performances? All the characters in the circus -- a fortune teller, a talking serpent, Medusa, a Yeti -- are played by Randall. I'm curioius as to why he ended up playing fey mincing types or whiny Casper Milquetoasts when he was apparently capable of so much more. A nice film for the family on a snowy afternoon.
Amazing job on the makeup for the time. And Tony Randall was amazing at playing different rolls in the movie. And as always Barbara Eden looked really good.
This is movie fantasy about Tony playing & different characters who bring a magical circus to a town who is in danger by being sold out to the railroad.
