The Oscar Levant Show Part 1
So, Khun Fred, who is this Oscar Levant of whom you speak?
Shamefully little of him on YouTube, but this vid is fun, actually I didn't even know that he'd had a show of his own. I remember him from numerous appearances as a guest on talk shows and variety shows, and later on I came to appreciate his work in films. His off-center approach to everything and his obvious distaste for ordinary reality somehow appealed to the young me.
