A Smattering of Brilliance

I just came across this glimpse of what television used to be like: Fred Astaire singing with Oscar Levant on Levant's own television show (where he could do and say whatever he wanted to do and say). It looks as if someone used a film camera to film the television show back in the day, the sound is often distorted, but it is really wonderful to watch and listen to this really rare gem.
