A grand en­trance

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - FROM THE COVER -

Lib­er­ace was jus­ti­fi­ably proud of his Las Ve­gas man­sion. He even in­cor­po­rated a video walk-through of the home into his shows at the then-Las Ve­gas Hil­ton.

The most strik­ing part of the video: Lib­er­ace smil­ing amid bub­bles in the man­sion’s or­nate bath­tub that fea­tures gold swan fix­tures. The mar­ble bath­tub had been dam­aged over the years, and its swan faucets were stolen. The tub would be among the sig­na­ture pieces that re­quired ren­o­va­tion.

As the pre-show video ends, the Roll­sRoyce that Lib­er­ace en­ters at his home ends up on­stage at the casino’s show­room. It’s MTV’s “Cribs” meets “Life­styles of the Rich and Fa­mous,” and the pre-show video gave fans who never were able to stop by a good idea of what Lib­er­ace’s place looked like in its hey­day.
