Words About Music featuring Oscar Levant, Jackie Cooper, Elsa Lanchaster and Natalie Wood (1956)

As this show is being broadcast, two teenage boys living just a mile apart in provincial Liverpool, England are taking their first steps toward utterly demolishing this kind of music and songwriting.

If this episode is any example, they should have saved Oscar Levant and cancelled everybody else.

God, Levant was a funny man. If you ever get the chance, read his autobiography.

Harpo Marx, in his own autobiography (Harpo Speaks) talks alot about Oscar. Worth reading, if you truly care about early comedy (before the 1950s tux-wearing Jan Murray types).
