Darling of the Day (1968) archiveWritten in 1968, based on Arnold Bennett's ?Buried Alive', Styne (?Funny Girl' & ?Gypsy'), Harburg (Finian's Rainbow & film "The Wizard Of Oz') and Johnson ( films ?Roxie Hart' & ?The Grapes Of Wrath') adapted this story of a celebrated artist, yearning for anonymity. He fakes his own death and assumes his valet's identity but carries on painting - which means his art mysteriously keeps reappearing.
