Description by OLDIES.com:

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.

Tony Randall 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 achievement.

Product Description:

In one of the finest performances of his career, Tony Randall plays the part of a mysterious Chinese doctor named Lao who rides into a small western town with his circus and changes the lives of all who come to see it. Lao assumes many disguises, some so extraordinary that Mr. Randall is completely unrecognizable.

Plot Synopsis:

A mysterious travelling circus, led by the odd Dr. Lao, arrives in a small dusty town. Dr. Lao is endowed with magical powers, and his troupe is populated with such mythical characters as Merlin, Pan, Medusa and even the Abominable Snowman. Together, Lao and his performers use their unique abilities to help the townspeople gain clearer outlooks on who they are -- and in the process change their lives forever.
