Based on the novel by Judith Krantz,
TILL WE MEET AGAIN tells the sweeping story of three
women, Eve and her two daughters, across the turbulent
years of the first half of the twentieth century.
Born in France and then running away from home to
seek stardom in Paris, Eve was abandoned by her family
and then in turn by the man who seduced her. Eventually
she found solace in the arms of French officer Paul
de Lancel (Michael York), the heir to a champagne
fortune. Eve's two daughters Freddy (Courteney Cox)
and Delphine (Mia Sara) find their lives centered
in the United States. Freddy becomes a pilot and helps
out during World War II, and Delphine seeks out the
glamor of movies, basking in the Hollywood nightlife,
then moving to pre-War France and becoming a star
of the French cinema.(here)

This article is about the 1918 song. For other uses,

"Till We Meet Again"
Cover of "Till We Meet Again",
Music by Richard A. Whiting
Lyrics by Raymond B. Egan
"Till We Meet Again" is a popular song.
The music was written by Richard A. Whiting, the lyrics
by Raymond B. Egan. Written during the Great War,
the song tells of the parting of a soldier and his
sweetheart. The title comes from the final line of
Smile the while you kiss me sad adieu,
When the clouds roll by I'll come to you,
Then the skies will see more blue,
Down in lovers lane my dearie,
Wedding bells will ring so merrily','
Every tear will be a memory,
So wait and pray each night for me,
Till we meet again.
As Whiting's daughter Margaret tells it, the song
was intended for a 1918 contest at a Detroit theater.
Dissatisfied with the result, Whiting threw the manuscript
in the trash. His secretary retrieved it and showed
it to their boss, publisher Jerome Remick, who submitted
it in the contest, where it won top honors.
In 1919, it was the number 1 song
of the year as recorded by Henry Burr and Albert Campbell.(here)
