I've always had a softspot for this score! Book - well - you know. Rome wrote I CAN GET IT FOR YOU WHOLESALE, in which Barbara Streisand made a splash singing 'Miss Marmelstein'. FANNY, DESTRY RIDES AGAIN, and CALL ME MISTER were all also hits. But his biggest hit was his first Broadway show, the revue PINS AND NEEDLES., which ran two and a half years. He also wrote the score for the first musical version of GONE WITH THE WIND, produced first in Japan. I caught it in L.A. with Lesley Ann Warren as Scarlett. Unlike Broadway songsmiths like Richard Rodgers, Frank Loesser, and Jule Styne, Rome doesnt't have a catalog of smash songs thaat were covered by pop singers.
