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.

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.

Re: What should be the next musical adapted for the movies?

Into the Woods is long overdue, and I'm glad it appears that it's going to be made. Company would be great, too.

Shenandoah would be an excellent musical on the big screen. I though it was going to be revived on Broadway a few years ago, but it fell through.

I would love to see A Chorus Line remade. The 1985 film SUCKED. They cut out some of the best songs (Hello 12, Hello 13, Hello Love and The Music and the Mirror). It should be done in its original time period (1970's) and leave the score intact!

ETA- I actually enjoyed the musical version of The Full Monty better than than movie, despite the change in location (Buffalo, NY instead of northern England). I wouldn't mind if it ended up on the big screen.

I still want to see Hugh Jackman as King Arthur in a remake of Camelot-hurry up Hollywood, before he gets too old!

He can also play Miguel de Cervantes/Don Quixote in a new movie version of Man of La Mancha.

I'd love to see Wicked as a movie, despite knowing that it's destined to disappoint in that medium.

I'll toss in a vote for "Into The Woods". What about "Avenue Q"?

Into The Woods seems to be the favorite. It also seems to be the one with a shooting date of October 2013. So maybe, we'll be seeing it in Summer of 2014.

Though I like Camelot, if I had to pick one movie to be made, it would be your second suggestion--Man of La Mancha with Jackman. Or maybe Alfie Boe, though he's stockier than the traditionally lean DQ.

A Chorus Line is the one needing a remake, followed by The Phantom of the Opera. Annie could probably do with a remake where Ms. Hannigan doesn't see the light. Jesus Christ, Superstar might also benefit from a remake but songs like What's The Buzz might show the musical's age too much; but maybe with a strong Judas, Jesus and Mary Magdalene it might work.

My vote would be for Alfie Boe, much better voice.

I suspect I might be a rare fan of the movie, but yes, it is very dated . Tim Minchin did Judas recently in London; wish I'd got a chance to see. And Chorus Line is currently in revival as well; only one I haven't seen yet of the recent West End runs (Wicked, Little Shop..., Chicago, Guys & Dolls, Kiss Me Kate et al).

Hope not derailing too much, but are there any 'bad' musicals people here love? I have a soft spot for At Long Last Love, Lost Horizon and Song of Norway . And adore Ken Russell's The Boyfriend. Guess I just love musicals in their infinite variety.

Don't get me wrong, I love the movie Jesus Christ Superstar. Ted Neeley, as Jesus was great, I loved him singing Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say) and Carl Anderson's Judas is amazing. Yvonne Elliman was just as good as the two male leads. I pull the movie out and watch when I feel the buzz. But it might be time for an updating, I've always wondered what it'd be like without the surreal aspect of the Romans in Muscle shirts and holding machine guns. Or of full sets being used instead of ruins.

As for bad musicals that I like, Grease 2 does have some catch songs, Cool Rider; funny songs that might not have been meant to be funny Whose That Guy, and songs that go back and forth between silly and decent Girl for All Seasons/(Love Will) Turn Back the Hands of Time.

I love musicals too.

At Long Last Love and Lost Horizon were like watching the proverbial train wreck. Song of Norway should have been marketed as a cure for insomnia. I actually like The Boy Friend with its ingenious play-within-a-movie conceit. It's just a bit over-produced with the musical fantasy sequences. But then, no one ever accused Ken Russell of understatement.

I never understood the hate Ted Neeley got for Jesus Christ Superstar. I saw him in a stage production of it about 15 years ago, and though he was a little bit too old, he still rocked the part.
