While Ira Gershwin fashioned the lyrics for this movie in 1946, the composer George Gershwin had died in 1937. With the aid of long time friend Kay Swift (herself a composer), Ira put together a number of George's unpublished melodies to provide a score for the film. "For You, For Me, For Evermore" became popular enough to make "Your Hit Parade" for two weeks. See more »
This is a film intriguing for many reasons. It has an uneasy postwar relationship with women in the workplace. It stars Bety Grable in an uncharacteristic role, and reveals Dick Haymes to be possessed of such a rich voice that he really missed the career boat as a vocalist. There is also a fascinating uncredited early appearance by Marilyn Monroe, and a star-studded list of contributors, including choreographer Hermes Pan. But what makes this film especially notable is the Gershwin music. Kay Swift's work with Ira Gershwin, from notebooks and unfinished sketches for various projects left by George Gershwin at his death in 1937, produced a complete posthumous score, the first for a motion picture.
