This mesmerizing film features a tour-de-force performance by Tony Randall in multiple roles, along with amazing visual effects and makeup that make it unique in the history of fantasy cinema. In the midst of the Depression, a traveling circus featuring mythical beasts like Medusa and the Abominable Snowman arrives unexpectedly in the remote town of Abalone, Arizona. The ringmaster, an elderly Chinese man named Dr. Lao, invites the townspeople to see his show--but the strange attractions they encounter there have a life-altering effect on the community. The combined talents of Randall, puppeteer/director George Pal and makeup wizard William Tuttle (who won two Special Oscars) result in a captivatingly unique entertainment experience. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.
