There’s a fine line between genius and insanity, and Oscar Levant erased it.  

A multi-hyphenate talent famous for his film appearances in An American in Paris and The Band Wagon, Levant was a fearless truth teller, a brilliant pianist, and an over-medicated neurotic mess -- a unique cocktail that made him a difficult person and a brilliant talk show guest. Battling network executives, his 1958 appearance on The Tonight Show could make him a legend, if he manages not to unravel first. Fresh from a hit Broadway run, Entertainment Weekly raves that Good Night, Oscar is “a gold mine of witticisms.”
