Description by OLDIES.com:
Born Wladziu Valentino Liberace, the irrepressible musician and entertainer was better known by only his last name Liberace. The Liberace Show made Liberace one of the most loved and well-known entertainers in the world. At its prime the show played on 219 television stations and had an estimated 35,000,000 viewers. Some stations played the show up to 10 times a week. The shows format consisted mostly of Liberace at the piano, sometimes accompanied by his brother George on the violin, chatting with the studio and home audience, and introducing the occasional guest. Liberace made a point of looking directly into the camera at the home audience. Although this was considered taboo in the television industry, it brought his millions of fans closer to Liberace, who looked at him as their friend. This two disc DVD edition features eight classic Liberace shows produced between 1954 to 1956, when Liberace was at his peak.
