Seven Faces of Dr. Lao (1964)

[Tony Randall, Barbara Eden, Arthur O'Connell, John Ericson]

An old Chinese gentleman rides into the town of Abalone, Arizona, and changes it forever, as the citizens see themselves reflected in the mirror of Lao's mysterious circus of mythical beasts.

At 1:38:34, as the movie ends, Kevin Tate, age 9, demonstrates his new-found ability to juggle, as the mysterious Dr. Lao leaves town. The boy juggles 3 gold balls for nearly a minute, as a symbol of the Doctor's special gift to the boy and the other townspeople whose lives have been touched.
