A completely uncommon western. Food for the soul. Lessons for life at all ages. Tony Randall capturing your imagination in a role...roles! as he never did before or since. Barbara Eden early in her film career irrestibly charming. And a kid who will touch you as deeply as Jackie Cooper in The Champ or Shirley Temple ever did. All of this and more delivered by the golden age master of cinematic fantasy, George Pal.
Well, what more could you want? Don't die, never having seen it. The sooner you see it, the sooner you can look forward to seeing it again and sharing it with your friends. YES! YES! YES!
This is a magical, moving, marvelous one-of-a-kind film, and now that it's on DVD, DON'T MISS IT! You'll want to enter the world of Dr. Lao over and over.
and understanding that there was a cause and effect value to the film,Also that you have to look inside, was pretty insightful for a child to grasp...but
I caught the end of it just recently and now i have discided it is my all time favorite...
Some people don't understand Seven Faces. They think it stinks. They think the acting is horrific and the sets are from a local middle school. They also don't understand the plot (especially the part about the family and the snowman). The humor does fade at times.
!Excuse! They are wrong. Tony is superb. The film shows off his assets very well. He can be Pan, he can be a snake, he can be a woman, he can be Merlin. This is important.
Why was this movie made? We don't know, but we are glad that it was. The dragon is bigger than all of us. Tony is better than all of us. Dr. Lao is older than all of us. Understand? Neither do I! Tony explains, then dances.
In fact, Dr. Lao is a seven ring circus that makes viewers dance. Not only does Dr. Lao save the town he also saves our soul. He captures our imaginations and prevents us from falling into the pitfalls of modern materialism for we ARE the townspeople and we must not sell our lives inorder to promote business!
Tony takes on many roles, as many as it takes to show us our souls and urge us to look deeper than we've looked before. What man is not changed after seeing the despised snowman or the pitiful Merlin who can no longer produce the same magnitude of magic.Read more ›
