« The Zen of Job | Main | On Becoming a Great Uncle (not an uncle that's great) »



I am applauding you, this brief post, and Oscar Levant! Loved him and his biting wit. Did you read that his TV show was abruptly cancelled in the 50s when he made the following remark on the air after Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism: "Now that Marilyn Monroe is kosher, Arthur Miller can eat her!" Gotta love him!


Danny: I never heard that one among the many pearls about Levant. But I guess if you're gonna get your own show yanked out from under you, you do it in style. And Levant did it, like everything else, in his own inimitable style.
