Doris Day portrayed 1920's torch singer Ruth Etting in the MGM film biography 'Love Me or Leave Me' in 1954. Thirteen of the fifteen songs from 'Love Me or Leave Me' were classic period pieces. However two songs were written specifically for the film. "I'll Never Stop Loving You", a song by Sammy Cahn and Nicholas Brodzsky, was nominated for an academy award for best original song. It was popularized by Doris Day and was a top-twenty hit for her in 1955. The other original song was "Never Look Back" written Chilten Price.
