Is that his brother George kneeling in front?

I wondered about that, too. But I couldn't tell for sure if it was him so I didn't name him.

It's kind of hard to tell without the candelabra.

Nah. George didn't handle the candelabra, Libby did.

I mean, didn't 'Hollywood Confidential' publish something back in the 50s about Liberace always polishing his candelabra before a broadcast?

Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

That certainly looks like brother George looking up at PPXII (The Kneeling of Brother George).

More intriguingly, the other fellow on his knees is a dead-ringer for Ferdinand Marcos, no? Maybe this photo is more legend-intensive than you suspected!
