BACK IN TV HISTORY, LIBERACE ATTEMPTED TO OUTSMART BATMAN!

Here’s something to whet your appetite for the Liberace HBO movie “Behind the Candelabra” premiering this weekend. Our brainy friend Chris Nichols, who writes the Ask Chris column (among other things) for Los Angeles Magazine, sent us this hilarious campy 1966 episode of Batman in which Liberace plays twin piano playing villains, and one seems to be a LOT straighter than the other. You’ll also see a trio of gorgeous girl criminals who look very familiar (is the brunette Edy Williams?) Let us know if you figure out who they are…

    Glad he stuck to playing piano — he’s a terrible actor! 🙂

    American Television has reached a new low by celebrating this Man’s filthy immoral lifestyle in order to get ratings. Simply disgusting~

    I have to agree with Charlton Heaton III. Liberace is by no means a shining example for the gay community. And they don’t pretend he is. But if I understand correctly, HBO is not revealing, as they definitely should, Liberace was 57 years old when he seduced Scott, his “lover”, who was 16 years old. That means Liberace was a pedophile. He should have been prosecuted. He also was homophobic never admitting his gayness or his diagnoses of AIDS. If HBO is going to make a movie of this man’s life, do it accurately.

    One of my favorite childhood shows. Bad acting all around, but that was part of its corny charm.

    Lipp, by showing the romance of liberace gay lover on hbo, it may be the next thing on the ashkenzai ‘s list to make america legalize pedophila.

    Lipp, thank you for all of your observations. I saw the movie, it was horrible. The book was was better.

    I don’t understand why they got that old goat Matt Damon to play Scott, Scott was 16 Damon is nearly mid 40s. I can’t see either Matt or Douglas getting any awards for this movie, It was that awful. This movie could have been an ostentatious extravaganza, but it reall fell flat. Douglas was horrible as Liberace.

    Btw in Cali, our young people will now be subjected to learning all about gays.

    As much as I love both Matt Damon and Michael Douglas, I had fits of giggles during some of the early scenes. Michael Douglas’ take on Liberace was like an SNL skit. However, I have to admit that I watched the whole thing.

    Denise I watched the whole thing too. The acting was horrible. But I think I blame Steven soderbergh more than anyone else for this craptastic movie.

    when I was a kid I couldn’t wait to watch Batman every week. Loved that show. I watched the HBO show, it was kinda corny. Made old Lee look like a sex addict.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
