Description
An elderly Chinese man routs evil in a Western frontier town by setting up his circus for the townspeople. The various performers affect each of the circus' visitors in a different way, and in the end the unscrupulous citizen who dominates the town repents. Emmy-winner Tony Randall (TV's "The Odd Couple," "Gremlins 2: The New Batch") plays eight different characters in the movie, with the help of Academy Award-winning special visual effects and make-up that earned make-up artist William Tuttle a special Honorary Academy Award for his outstanding make-up achievement!

        Comments about this product:

        A children's movie of sorts, but one that goes for much more and gets it, this is a lovely life-affirming film that far exceeds its cornball trappings. Entertaining, thought provoking and, like the Circus of Dr. Lao it depict, it's much more than it seems to be. Yes, Randall's mugging as stereo-typed Chinese showman Dr. Lao will make some uncomfortable, but you can justify it because it's all part of the act (Lao even gets caught slipping in and out of his Chinese accent). Surprisingly perceptive and at times even tough-minded, the film is sprinkled with Taoist philosophy (as one might expect from a film called ".. Dr. Lao"), beautifully making its point about the magic of simply being alive. We all need some of that sometimes. A charmer that holds up to repeated viewing. If you are sensitive about racial stereotyping though, you may have trouble with some of this film.

          I saw this movie years ago, and always remembered it. How is that for staying power. Tony Randall does such a great job in this, and besides it being entertaining, there are great moral lessons. Just fun.

            This is a great movie to watch when you want to escape everyday life and visit "Dr Lao's Circus".
            I dare you! One of my favorite movies as a child and now as an adult.
