Is it possible for a fish to live in a glass bowl?

I’m planning to get a fish (gold fish in general) for a pet, and I’m wondering whether it’s possible for fishes to live only in a glass bowl, without any electrical aid, like an air pump or oxygen pump. I want something really plain and simple, like the ones you see in movies where the side of the table is decorated by a glass bowl with a fish. So, if I were to get that, will the fish live?
