"This movie was made in the 1930's. It features the acting and voice of one of the greatest tenors and singers of all time, Beniamino Gigli. It is a rare treat to be able to hear and see such a wonderful artist who left the scene over 50 years ago! The story is VERY good. I won't go into details----just trust me on this one. It "gets to your heart". For a "mere pittance" that is less than the price of two movie tickets you can have one of the greatest singers of all time right there on your TV screen. And, you don't even need a "seance" to bring Gigli back! This movie is well worth the cost for the experience it provides. Buy it, you'll like it! :o) Email:boland7214@aol."

"Non Ti Scordar Di Me is an old melodramatic movie that stars the opera star Beniamino Gigli. A woman marries a lonely widowed father (Gigli) on a rebound. When the old lover enters back into her love she has to choose between responsiblity and love. The plot of the movie is generic but the music makes up for it. Gigli doesn't have much of a movie persona here, but then this was his first role. He makes up for it with his amazing tenor. The movie is in English, though the songs are in Italian and not subtitled. 2.5 rounded to 3."
