Trivia / 7 Faces of Dr. Lao

  • Fake Nationality: The Chinese Lao (not to mention the Turkish Apollonius, British Merlin, Greek Pan and Medusa, and Nepalese Snowman) are all played by European-American Randall. No wonder his accent "comes and goes."
  • What Could Have Been: Peter Sellers was originally going to play Dr. Lao but he was too busy to fit it into his schedule. Enter Tony Randall.
