Thanks for that information plus pic of Bix and a friend

Thanks for that information. Liberace lip synching to someone else playing St. Louis Blues is definitely different than the description in the ebay listing of Liberace playing the trumpet in Bix's style. Perhaps the person selling the film added that embellished description to add to the salability of the item. The title the seller gave the item, "16mm THE LIBERACE SHOW 1950s plays Bix Beiderbecke" was obviously done to reach Bix collectors. Still it would be interesting to see and hear Liberace "Talks about his column and reads from it about one of his heroes, Bix Beiderbecke."

As long as I am here check out this photo of Bix and a friend:
