Days of swine and roses

"Days of Wine and Roses" is a phrase from the 1896 poem "Vitae Summa Brevis" by Ernest Dowson. The passage inspired the title of a 1958 television play written by JP Miller and aired on Playhouse 90. It was turned into a feature film in 1962, directed by Blake Edwards, starring Jack Lemmon, and with Miller adapting his own script.
