When Liberace and Elvis Presley were both under contract at the Las Vegas Hilton, they often would spend time together after their shows, including this moment in 1956. "Elvis was younger, but he loved being around the older entertainers," recalls Reynolds. "Lee just loved being around beautiful people. He was a great appreciator of beautiful people and beautiful things."
