Forget Me Not is a 1936 British musical drama film directed by Zoltan Korda and starring Beniamino Gigli, Joan Gardner and Ivan Brandt. In the United States it was released under the alternative title Forever Yours. The film was made at Isleworth Studios. It was a remake of a 1935 German film of the same title. It was one of four remakes of foreign-language films made by London Films. The film was not generally well received by critics, although they praised Gigli's singing.
While travelling with her employer on an ocean liner, a secretary Helen Carleton meets and falls in love with a member of the crew. However, on arriving in New York his catty ex-girlfriend convinces her that he doesn't really love her. On the rebound she meets Italian opera singer Enzo Curti and accepts his offer of marriage. A year later she arrives with Enzo and his young son in London as part of a world tour and meets her former lover who appeals to her to go off with him.
