Asian pianist at the Rickshaw Chinese restaurant in New York City in the 1960 film The Apartment.

Protagonist Fran Kubelik (Shirley Winters) gives a copy of his album Rickshaw Boy (by Jimmy Lee Kiang with Orchestra) to her married lover/sh*theel Jeff Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray) for Christmas, since that's the place they hang out in. In return, he gives her a hundred bucks, making her feel cheap and suicidal.

The album cover picture is just a close-up shot of hands on a piano keyboard.

Kiang is not listed in the film credits, so we don't know who played him.
