The Ballad of John Latouche

Howard Pollack

Oxford University Press

The late 1940s saw Latouche moving about from place to place, and lover to lover. He maintained some connection with the political left in terms of his involvement with both the Henry Wallace campaign, and his advocacy of world government in works like the radio play Unhappy Birthday and the aborted The Last Joan, after John Steinbeck. He continued also to write popular songs and adapt plays for both radio and the stage, most notably Miss Julie for Elisabeth Bergner. He further undertook collaborations with composer Lehman Engel on Mooncalf (which premiered in Cleveland in 1951 as Golden Ladder) and composer William Friml on The Happy Dollar (which premiered in Houston in 1954).
