Trivia

Pianist, composer and artist Mike Garson played all the piano pieces in the style of Liberace for the close-up shots. During filming he was adorned with a variety of flashy jewelry - which Garson assumed were props. One evening after filming, he forgot to remove the rings and, when he got home, received a call from the producers informing him that the rings were, in fact, Liberace's real rings. See more »

Wonderful performance by Andrew Robinson
15 November 2005 | by (Up-state New York USA) – See all my reviews

As this picture was produced in 1988, these comments come 17 years later. This picture just showed on TV here in NY (USA). My mother was a Liberace fan as were many other women of her generation. This man was wonderful part of my childhood. His performances were so spectacular and over-the-edge. He was a true showman. The movie portrayed the many aspects of his life that people did not want to acknowledge at that time. The performance by Andrew Robinson was masterful. He looked and acted so much like Liberace it was hard to believe it was not Lee himself. Liberace was one of the most flamboyant entertainers in show business history. His style will never be duplicated.
