I thought Gone Are The Days!
was the movie version of the play Purlie Victorious
premiered in 1970 while Gone Are The Days!
was in 1963.
I do remember the 1981 filming of the musical that Showtime did, but it could still be a full movie instead of a recorded play.
There was a 2006 revival of Purlie on Broadway, so maybe it can be made into a movie musical.
Did I happen to mention, did I bother to disclose, this man we're seeking with a mole on his nose, I'm not sure of his clothes or anything else, except he's Chinese. A big clue by itself.
