I thought Gone Are The Days! was the movie version of the play Purlie Victorious. Purlie 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.
My bad, you're right on that one.
