    Hi...with reference to your 'Liberace Arrives' film, you have it dated as 1950. This can't be right, as my sister Val features in it, being one of the young ladies who turned out to see Mr Liberace. She was born in 1941, and took a 'sickie' day to go to the station to see him, and at the time she must have been at least 15/16. (She was consequently seen by her boss on TV and got the sack!)
