Film Chest Says July 23 For Liberace TV Classics Collection

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
The Film Chest has selected July 23 for the double-disc DVD release of Liberace TV Classics.
This master showman did not just play the piano, but staged elaborate “events” in which the piano (and other instruments) was played; a prop.    

There is a big difference between the two — just playing and performing — and Liberace set the standard in post-war America (and throughout the world for that matter).

Included in here are six “shows” from the mid-1950s (1954 – 1956): “Christmas Special” (1954) “Ladies Night” (1955), “Musical Shopping Tour” (1955), “Fan Favorites” (1955), “New Orleans Special” (1956) and “The Orchestra Steps Out” (1956).  

Plus Film Chest has included the 1965 “Mother's Day Special,” plus three bonus classic TV shows from the period in which Liberace appeared — “You Bet Your Life: The Secret Word is Hat” (1950 ), “The Jack Benny Show: Liberace Show” (1954) and “The Easter Seal Teleparade of Stars” (1955).
