"We do the lending for free and
usually give outreach money to pay
for brochures, visiting artists and
student transportation. We generally
have two or three traveling exhibi-

nificant part of my philanthropy."

"If we're concerned about passing
on our Jewish values, a key compo-
nent of that is a passion for art," says
Schnitzer, the father of two teenage
daughters.
"When you support the arts, you're
supporting healthy values and help-
ing build healthy communities. When
you're experiencing the arts, for me
visual arts, it helps ground you.
"There's creativity and a bit of the

Behind The Schmaltz

Liberace (1919-1987) was, in his own
way, just about as weird as music
■ I producer Phil Spector, now 73,
(1) and, like Spector, is perfect fodder
for his own HBO biopic. Behind the
Candelabra premieres on Sunday,
May 26, at 9 p.m.
Michael Douglas, 68, plays
Liberace, who soared to TV star-
dom in the early '50s as a light
classical pianist who jazzed things
up with flamboyant costumes,
candelabra-laden pianos and a
beaming smile. The film centers
on the gay relationship between
Liberace and Scott Thorson (Matt
Damon). It features the last score
composed by the late Marvin

ci)

Hamlisch.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh,
the film co-stars Dan Akroyd

as Liberace's real-life manager,
Seymour Heller. A genuinely good
guy, Heller was Liberace's man-
ager from 1950 until the pianist's
death.
Paul Reiser, 56, plays "Mr.
Feld," a character-composite
of Thorson's lawyers; Debbie
Reynolds takes the role of
Liberace's mother; and Rob Lowe
portrays the drug-addicted,
incompetent plastic surgeon Jack
Startz (who I think was Jewish).
By the way, Lowe's wife is Jewish,
and their children are being raised
Jewish.
