During a montage of Liberace's Las Vegas shows in the mid-Fifties, stock footage of the Strip and Downtown includes glimpses of hotels and showroom acts that date to late Seventies at earliest. See more »
Someone didn't do their homework as this biopic paints Liberace as a bisexual. As being not sure whether he likes girls or boys. Taking from his book of lies that came out about losing his virginity to a dancer, Miss Bea Haven, and then his romance with the young woman beard his mother didn't like.
Even at this point, 1988, a year after his death, the truth was out. And Victor Garber plays the charismatic pianist with no charisma whatsoever. Perhaps as a openly gay actor in real life, he didn't want to stereotype. But let's face it; Liberace WAS a stereotype, and he loved it.
This Liberace doesn't seem to love much of anything. With the personality of a corpse, he goes from juke joints to television to Vegas in this production so low budget it looks more PBS than network. Dull stuff.
