A grand entrance
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.
