Golden Boy, the 1964 musical adaptation of Clifford Odets' tragic 1938 play about a reluctant boxer, updated the story and complicated it by making the boxer an African-American, thus introducing the element of interracial romance at a time when the civil rights movement was reaching its height. Not only that, but the show's creators (including Odets himself, although he died the year before the opening) retained the story's ending, in which the boxer, distraught over killing an opponent in the ring, commits suicide in an automobile crash. Still, he was no doubt what kept it going for 569 performances and sent the cast album into the Top 40. But the salary he had to be paid may have been what made Golden Boy the longest-running Broadway show in history not to turn a profit. On the date of the recording session for Golden Boy, Davis was hoarse.
