It's really impossible to give a numerical score to this film, as it sure seems like it's missing a lot. After all, the film is only two minutes and fifty-five seconds long! I assume the folks who assembled the "Becoming Charley Chase" DVD set decided it was better to include an incomplete film than nothing in the case of "Don't Forget". So, I decided to watch the film again and listened to the alternate audio track--in which the person making commentary on the film indicated it is a recently discovered final third of the film. The first two-thirds are still missing--and hopefully will one day emerge.
The film begins with Charley in bed--yet he is supposed to be getting married! Oddly, after waking, he gets back up and quickly scrambles to get to the wedding. Eventually, he does manage to get there--but he can't help but think he's forgotten something. When he finally arrives, it dawns on him....
By the way, like many of Charley's films, this one was directed by his brother, James Parrott. The different last name is due to Charley changing names for the big screen, though he directed a lot of films himself using his real last name, Parrott.
