Blind Items Revealed #1 - Old Hollywood

September 25, 2014

This former B+ list mostly movie actor once starred in one of the most famous movies of all-time was killed. A man was convicted of the crime, but according to the tabloid selling former lover of a deceased A list celebrity it was the A lister who killed the actor after he threatened to go public with their gay love affair if money was not forthcoming.

Sal Mineo/Liberace

Why would Mineo want to be 'out' in that era? Could this be a lie of the crackhead ex of the celebrity A lister?

Bullsh*t. Liberace might not have come right out and said "I'm gay!", but he sure as hell didn't seem to hide it. My grandmother and all her friends (way back in the '70's) loved him. They also knew he was gay. Those little ladies didn't give two f**ks. They were diehard fans and swooned at the mention of him.

if mineo was married to liZa he was never really In dear

or Judy garland

I agree. This is bullshit. Liberace would never have risked his fingers on such a pedestrian job, either. Both angles don't work.

Kno Won Uno said...

All in favor of "BULLSHIT"?

ettacettera said...

"Aye"

sandybrook said...

BS nobody alive thought Liberace was straight back then.

Mike Oxsmall said...

Mike Douglas didn't seem to know Liberace was gay.

Kno Won Uno said...

I really think the Entys are adolescents with shameful googling skills.

sandybrook said...

I have my suspicions about him too

Iknowrite? said...

Aye!

Nimrod said...

AYE Bogus BULLSHIT blind. This is what happens when you outsource for material and bulk purchase it. The blinds here are disposable pseudo storytelling now.

Everything that's ever been printed or even said about Liberace indicates that he was a very nice, gentle person. I don't think he'd be capable of S.M. 's murder. But stranger things have happened and not resolved in Hollywood forever. The Black Dahlia's murder being one example.

Jess Sayin' said...

While I have real trouble seeing "Lee" go to those lengths, he was very much defensive about the homosexuality accusation; he sued the NY Times in 1958 or so for calling him "fruity" in a review. He definitely would not want to be "outed".

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Least believable lie since Richard Nixon's "I am not a crook" speech.

Buck Naked said...

I think you'd be surprised at what some people are really capable of.

JenniferH said...

This reveal isn't that Liberace killed Sal Mineo, it's that Liberace's ex-boyfriend claimed he did.

nuance said...

@JenniferH, yup, that's what it says. The bullshit point being the whole story is most likely a product of the writer's imagination where tricky wording is key. You must be new here. We've been noticing a pattern..

sandybrook said...

Yes I remember he hid it, not well, but when the palimony suit came out it was a really big deal, then he "officially" died from AIDS which back then was a "gay disease" or "drug users disease".

H2O said...

Who killed Mineo then? Who else had a motive? I'm not saying I accept this reveal but Liberace could have told the boyfriend if/when he started acting up. Also, he would not do it himself but have it done.

It stinks that Sal Mineo was killed, that is all.

gadzooks said...

According to other sources, it was over drug money. I don't think Liberace was a pusher.

tarap said...

He sued a publication that said he was gay! So yes he hid it

it took forever said...

ANything is possible in hollywood

it took forever said...

Liberace did sue the tabloids who said he was gay and he did win! He was always hiding it, he was never out. Elton in his early days tried to hide it too
