Mythical Beings: "The Circus of Dr. Lao" by Charles G. Finney

The Circus of Dr. Lao - John Marco, Boris Artzybasheff, Charles G Finney

Original Review, 1980-11-14)

Circa 1935(4?) this fantasy involves a circus which visits a hick town in Arizona. The circus is run by a weird little Chinaman and is comprised primarily of mythical beings (Unicorns, Chimeras, Mermaids, etc.). It just has to be a metaphor for SOMETHING -- I wish I could figure out what it is meant to represent [indirect question].
