Liberace – A Christmas TV Special
Liberace (1919-1987) was one of America’s greatest piano, stage and TV entertainers in the 50’s and 60’s. Known for his extravagant costumes, personal charm and self-deprecating wit, his public image became linked with one ever-present stage prop; a silver candelabrum perched on his piano.
This DVD released to coincide with the 20th anniversary year of his death, includes two episodes of his immensely popular network television programmes The Liberace Show, featuring a Christmas Special and also a Mothers Day Show.
