^Already adapted as the 1963 film Gone Are the Days!, and as a 1981 made-for-TV movie version of the musical.
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.
That's correct. I've never seen Purlie (would sure like too) but I have seen "Gone Are the Days" and it is one funny ass movie.
Couldn't find anything by Robert Guillamue, specifically Newfangled Preacher Man. But I did find two by Melba Moore as Lutiebelle singing Purlie and I Got Love from that Showtime adaptation.

You have gone too far. You have married Fester, you have destroyed his spirit, you have taken him from us. All that I could forgive. But Debbie...
