FAME, LOVE, and EXCESS: Behind the Scenes of Steven Soderbergh’s “Behind the Candelabra”

Scott Thorson and Liberace - Vintage Black and White photograph

Check out this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at “Behind the Candelabra”, HBO’s newest film by Academy Award winning director, Steven Soderbergh. The film is a decadent look back at the life of famed musician Liberace and his “tempestuous” six year relationship with his young lover and limousine driver, Scott Thorson.

The film is crashing the Cannes film festival, and is being eaten up alive by critics for its passionate performances by Michael Douglas (as Liberace, himself) and Matt Damon (as the apple of his eye), and the sumptuous reincarnation of Liberace’s over-the-top lifestyle.

Straight from soundtracks of teen and biker movies of the past, we stumbled onto this delight by ‘The Zanies’.  Sounding completely wrapped and psychotic, we were impressed by the catchy piano plunking, and crazed laughter which we can completely relate to.

“Boy, is he nuts!”

And you better believe here at the Eye of Faith, the madder the science, the more up our alley it is!   So enjoy this wild track! We have it on repeat! Shrouded by a veil of mystery, we had trouble finding information on this group… so if any of our loyal readers have the inside scoop, please give us a heads up!
