Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Liberace Mug

Liberace-Mug_2134

I bought this Liberace mug at the first Hollywood estate sale I went to when I moved to LA in the late 70′s. I think Jack Hellman, the recipient of this inscribed mug from Liberace, was a critic at Variety.  I know that he was a Taurus.

Whatever he was he was a big deal who had very fancy clothes and a lot of personal gifts from a lot of  Hollywood stars.  I also bought a tux jacket there, maybe Jack’s, that I wore a lot right after “September” came out and I started getting invited to fancy music events.

Of course, no matter what I wore I never was going to dress better than Liberace….
