Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Carrie,/Sincerely/Yours Liberace/Love!/Nov. 2. 1955", B/w 8x10. Liberace (1919-1987), whose real name was Wladziu Valention Liberace, disappointed the critics but delighted the public by channeling his talent into popular and novelty songs and on showmanship. With flamboyant costumes and campy performances, Liberace became in the staid 1950s the world's highest paid pianist and star of his own Emmy-winning TV show. Liberace left behind six gold albums, two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a museum and foundation, which fund scholarship grants in the arts. He also starred in several 1940s "soundies," one of the ancestors of music videos, and in three movies, including a starring role as a deaf concert pianist in the 1955 film Sincerely Yours, and not one but two appearances on the campy TV classic Batman. Heavily creased. Edges slightly worn. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
