Arthur Penn and William Gibson collaborated not only in terms of producing well-known works in American theater such as Two for the Seesaw, The Miracle Worker, Golda, Golden Boy, and Monday After the Miracle, they were also able to include their families and share their lives for fifty years. As with all great friendships, theirs underwent a significant challenge, particularly in how they rescued the Broadway musical adaptation of Golden Boy in 1964. The Golden Boy, which was written in 1937, contributed not only as a fundamental element of Clifford Odets or Group Theatre's scribe-in-residence, it also rescued the organization from financial problems. Also, it initiated a financial legacy for Walt and Nora Odets.
