Storyline

The 1953 feature is a Compilation film, with pianist Liberace as the master of ceremonies in which his music is woven in-and-around the presentation of three 1951 shorts, consequently it is comprised of about 45-minutes of footage from the full-showing of the shorts (credits and all as shown on their original release, preceding each) and between those, the maestro is seen and heard playing his own arrangement of 'Chopin's Waltz in C Sharp Minor," and "Polanaise"; Liszt's "Liebestraum"; "The Yaketa-Yak Polka", based on the Tritsch Tratsch polka of Johann Strauss' and the folk song "Orche Tchorina." Scattered between the music is "Groan and Grunts" with Gil Lamb; "Lord Epping Returns" with Leon Errol, and 1950s "Waiting For Baby" with Scott Elliott(billed as Robert Neil) and Suzi Crandall (billed as Susan Crandall.)
