Seven Faces of Dr. Lao Reviews
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.

I have always been fan of such movies, and while reading great history of Awards, I came to know it received Oscar for Makeup for Tuttle, although Makeup categories had been setup then. It is fascinating film, one that really keeps the height of the plot above all. It has got humor in it which is very amusing. It does everything to keep the plot fantasy-based and it does succeed in doing so, many characters are purely selected according to the need of roles. I must appreciate Tony Randall's wonderful performance and great arty work, which required him to be different at all 7 roles at the same time.
