Here's more info-
A few years ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Tony Randall. He is without a doubt one of the most interesting people in Hollywood. He told me that "The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao" was his favorite of all the movies he's done.
It's not as widely known as some of his other pictures, but it's a very fun watch. There are a few scenes that really young kids may fight a bit scary, so be warned. It's not a horror movie, it's a fantasy. Here is a synopsis of the movie from IMDB.
Summer Film Series: 7 Faces of Dr. Lao
Times: 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Imperial Calcasieu Museum
Address: 204 West Sallier Street, Lake Charles, LA 70601
An old Chinese gentleman rides into the town of Abalone, Arizona and changes it forever, as the citizens see themselves reflected in the mirror of Lao's mysterious circus of mythical beasts. Written by Edward E. Pringle <email@example.com>
In the early 20th century, Dr. Lao brings his circus to the town of Abalone. The town is under threat due to a break in the water supply system and wealthy businessman Clint Stark advises everyone that he's prepared to buy them all out, lock, stock and barrel. What he doesn't tell anyone is that the railroad will run through the town in less than a year's time. The local newspaperman, Ed Cunningham and the librarian Angela Benedict both think Stark is up to no good. Dr. Lao spins his magic and the good townsfolk can have their fortune told; be introduced to Pan, the God Joy; or entertained by Merlin the magician and his tricks. Dr. Lao gets them to look at life differently and not to sell out to the highest bidder. Written by garykmcd
