Critic Reviews for Seven Faces of Dr. Lao
A strange, sporadically entertaining fantasy, which won the Honorary Oscar for Makeup: Tony Randall plays seven roles.
Tony Randall's best--a whimsical western
a delightful, imaginative curio
Mildly diverting, but no classic
Audience Reviews for Seven Faces of Dr. Lao
7 Faces of Dr. Lao (1964) ??? Colorful, amusing fantasy about enchanting circus performer who aids a small western town to find hope and restore their discouraged lives. Kudos to Tony Randall, who plays seven roles! Honorary Award Oscar for make-up achievements.
This is by no definition a good movie. 100% with five reviews means just as much as 5% with 100 reviews.
In the most remarkable role and performance of his career, Tony Randall stars in this delightful fable about a mysterious Chinese doctor and magical proprietor of a circus that comes to a dusty Arizona town and generates a wave of good happenings. Dr. Lao assumes different guises in order to teach his message of pride and self-reliance to the townsfolk. Fine supporting performances by Barbara Eden, Arthur O' Connell and John Ericson. But it's Randall's virtuoso turn where he plays all six roles as Dr. Lao, Merin, Pan, The Abominable Snowman, Medusa, Apollonius of Tyana with the aid of elaborate make-up that won a special Oscar for Outstanding Makeup Achievement that is the heart of the wonderous film. One of my favorite childhood films a total joy. Highly Recommended.
