By job a journalist, Saidy composed sketches for revues before venturing upon full-scale functions. He composed the reserve for Bloomer Gal in cooperation with Siegfried Herzig, with music by Harold Arlen and choreography by Agnes De Mille. The display, which opened up on 5 Oct 1944 and presented Celeste Holm and Joan McCracken within the cast, was extremely successful, operating until 27 Apr 1946. Saidy adopted this with another strike, collaborating this time around with E.Con. ‘Yip’ Harburg within the publication for Finian’s Rainbow (1947), with music by Harburg and Burton Street. This show went for 725 shows. Saidy’s next display, that he had written the reserve and was also movie director, was the flop Flahooley, which went from 14 May to 16 June 1951.
