Phony Tinsel

Oscar Levant in An American in Paris (1951)

“Behind the phony tinsel of Hollywood lies the real tinsel.”

Oscar Levant (December 27, 1906 – August 14, 1972) was an American pianist, composer, author, comedian, and actor. He was more famous for his mordant character and witticisms, on the radio and in movies and television, than for his music.
