the hollywood-inspired, addiction-fuelled, depression-scarred wisdom of oscar levant



Oscar Levant on Oscar Levant:

There’s a fine line between genius and insanity.
I have erased this line.

It’s not a pretty face, I grant you. But underneath
its flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.


on his fellow actresses:

I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin.    

Now that Marilyn Monroe is kosher, Arthur Miller can eat her.
—after Marilyn Monroe’s conversion to Judaism


on life:

So little time and so little to do…

It’s not what you are, it’s what you don’t become that hurts.
