On the crest of a wave, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart also contributed a new song, “Anytime, Anywhere, Anyhow,” to June Days, a musicalized version of a frothy 1920 comedy called The Charm School. Most of the score was by newcomer J. Fred Coots; quite why Rodgers and Hart wrote an interpolation is unclear, but it must have given Rodgers special satisfaction to recall that Jerome Kern had written incidental songs for the original play. As if in response to the success of The Garrick Gaieties, things began to happen with Sweet Rebel, now retitled Dear Enemy. And the one who made them happen was Helen Ford. Robert Jackson, a lawyer who had made a million dollars selling his family's grocery store chain, finally agreed to back the entire show.
