To the world, Liberace was the king of Las Vegas and lived his life with a style that most people could not comprehend. But every public story has a very private reality that is often in stark contrast with what the public thinks it knows. Scott Thorson got the attention of Liberace from the moment the two first laid eyes on each other and theirs wound up being a very stormy relationship. Liberace was battling the realities of show business while also doing what he could to keep Scott on the shortest leash possible. When the real book is opened on the public persona known as Liberace, people start to realize that they really never knew the man at all.
