Here's a weird childhood memory

The Well-Tempered Blog reports that Liberace's first Palm Springs house is on the market. Not the sort 0f thing I usually remark upon here, but my brothers & I went actually went trick-or-treating to that house when we lived in Palm Springs, probably the Halloween of '68. I don't remember how much candy— if any— we got*, or who answered the door — if anyone. I think that the front landscaping was less green and more desert-like back then, but the circular driveway and the chandeliers are just as remembered. I wonder if this was the house with the grand piano-shaped swimming pool?
* The supposedly miserly Jack Benny was famously generous at Halloween.
