| Lost film, splendid performance by Andrew Robinson
Two bio films came out the year after Liberace died. This was the good one and it has never been released on video. Andrew Robinson and supporting actors deserve more recognition. I found Robinson to be an effective Liberace with physical resemblance and well captured mannerisms of Mr. Entertainment. It was credible enough that I have watched it several times over the years. (I was sensible enough to tape it when broadcast.) I watched Liberace on TV in the early days and learned about Liszt, Chopin, and Gershwwin from his playing. The first classical record I ever bought as a child was his recording of a Chopin polonaise. I became a fan of the music and bought more, but I also discovered Horowitz and Rubinstein. So I owe more than a half century of fascination with classical piano to Liberace.

Andrew Robinson brought Lee's story to life for me as he found his role in bridging popular and classical music. I will watch the movie again and add specifics. Whether you liked Liberace or have followed the career of Andrew Robinson this movie is worth your attention if you have the chance to see it.

Incidentally John Rubinstein who plays Jamie is the son of the great pianist Artur Rubinstein. His career, too, has been incredible. Good luck finding this. Note that Amazon lists something with Robinson which turns out not to be this movie, so be cautious.
