The TV movies about him were pretty good too. I watched the Victor Garber one recently, but if I remember right Andy Robinson (Scorpio killer from Dirty Harry and Garak from DS9) did the other one.
Go look up some of his encrusted ass outfits, they put French royalty to shame. Mr. Showmanship in every way.
Some London tabloids tried to out him in the 50's, and Lee sued them for libel . . . and won.
They asked him how the accusation affected him, and he responded, "I cried all the way to the bank." I always thought that was wierd that Liberace coined that phrase.
