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 »

Superb performance by Andy Robinson rivals the maestro himself.
14 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

As Liberace, Andrew Robinson gives a performance that is nothing short of brilliant. He captures the man's every nuance, the gestures, the speech, the generosity, the insecurity. As I longtime Andy Robinson fan, I find this unsurprising, he gave an extraordinary turn in an Emmy-nominated role on L.A. Law-many will remember him as the psychotic killer in Dirty Harry, the first in the Eastwood series. Soap fans may remember Robinson as the original Frank Ryan on Ryan's Hope.

Much of Liberace's life is still guarded, and this film is no expose. We are VIPs at a tribute to a master showman, maybe THE master showman. A man who's brilliance in entertaining is even more amazing given the personal demons he fought from childhood until his death.

I was fortunate to have been at Radio City during Liberace's last tour. It was indeed one of the most memorable live performances I have ever seen.

Sit back and enjoy this film, enjoy the music, enjoy Liberace's life, and enjoy Andy Robinson's marvelous performance.
