This movie is an unsung masterpiece with alternate realities transformed by Director George Pal. Randall's talents were ever used to better advantage. The clever inside-out look of town-as-dysfunctional-family juxtaposed against Dr. Lao's circus frames the satire perfectly. Arthur O'Connell and John Ericson are marvelous as Dr. Lao's opponents for the town's soul.
