Douglas plays pianist Liberace in this biopic that reflects on his relationship with Scott Thorson, played by Matt Damon. This HBO movie is directed by Steven Soderbergh.
I met him once in passing. My father had a weekend house in Palm Springs and I remember driving out and we came to this cross-section and this Rolls-Royce convertible pulled up alongside. It was a sunny day and, my God, the reflections were bouncing off his gold jewelry and diamond rings and his hair was perfectly coiffed. Of course, we now know that he was wearing a wig.
