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(herself a composer), Ira put together a number of George's unpublished melodies to provide a score for the film.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
Miss Pilgrim, there's something I've been meaning to say to you.
Yes, Mr. Pritchard?
As I was standing over there just now, I, uh, I was reviewing your... work here in the office, and I've come to the conclusion that I can see no reason why your employment shouldn't be continued on a permanent basis.
Oh, Mr. Pritchard, I can't tell you how... Not only am I happy for myself, but just think, in only three days, I've succeeded in changing your viewpoint toward women working in offices.
I'm afraid ...
For You, for Me, for Evermore
