Rome was now much sought-after, although his next show displayed similarly political concerns.
This was "Sing out the News" (1939) and, once again, there was a universally accepted hit song, "F.D.R. Jones." In the early '40s Rome wrote songs for several revues and shows, but it was not until after the end of World War II that he had his first major success.
In the mid-'60s Rome showed that the social conscience that had marked his early work was still intact when he wrote "The Zulu and the Zayda" (1965), which dealt with racial and religious intolerance.
