I wish my brother George's icon was here...

Did I ever tell you that my landlord in Milwaukee's dad was friends with Liberace's brother George? They grew up down the street from each other.

I once met Billy Barty and Harvey Fierstein. :)

Lee's dad was apparently not looked upon favorably by Mrs. Liberace. He and George got young Wladziu in trouble (usually by distracting him from his piano practice) on many an occasion.

What truly amazes me is that about 80% of the US population went for decades not realizing he was practically floating out of his sequined loafers...

Have you (either you, jayjaybear or you esprix) seen "Good Night and Good Luck"?

No. I'm not a big movie person. I do know they recreate his interview with Murrow, but haven't actually seen the movie.

I think they use the actual Liberace footage from the interview with Murrow. Either way, it really brings home how "naive" people were.

Have not, but now I want to see it just for that part. :)

Denial - it's not just a river in Egypt anymore! :) It certainly was a different time, and I count myself lucky to have been born when I was.
