Goofs

When Olga comes to Hugh's cabin prior to the ship docking in New York, there is a splash of light reflected off the water on the wall behind Hugh. However this reflection should come through the porthole, and be on the wall opposite the porthole not on the same wall. It is unlikely that Hugh has a cabin with two portholes. See more »

An all-time musical classic
8 July 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I recall seeing this movie 50 years ago when very young and impressionable, and needless to say I'm still impressed by it. This is a poignant, unfolding story of shipboard romance, disappointed love, and then overcoming unrequited love and finding solace in learning to care again for others, but is that a true substitute for love?

Joan Gardner, as Helen, must decide if she is still in love with her former handsome seafaring flame, or has it really died out after they went separate ways, and she married another?

B. Gigli, as the great singer Enzo Curti, has been left with only his small son after his wife died. At one of his concerts he notices Helen who is in tears when he sings his memorable song, "Non ti scordar de me" and is deeply attracted to her but his poor English hinders him. Eventually they meet and arrange to meet again the next day when, surprise, Gigli brings along a huge dictionary! That gets him over the hurdle somewhat as far as words are concerned. It's a lovely and touching affection that springs to life between them.

There are so many wonderful operatic melodies which Gigli sings in his golden voice, yet the title of the movie (translated)"Do Not Forget Me" dominates as it is sung as background music earlier and as a concert hall solo also.

It's an unforgettable hit. Just enjoy and treasure the moments!
