Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Chasing Through Europe was an entertaining sequel to David Butler's 1928 directorial effort The News Parade. Nick Stuart returns in the role of a brash newsreel cameraman who trods the globe in search of a "hot scoop." In the course of his travels, Stuart meets Sue Carol, engaged to marry a man she doesn't love. With our hero's help, Carol wriggles out of her nuptial commitment, only to be menaced by her guardian, a criminal mastermind who hopes to make a bundle of money by holding the girl for ransom. The story takes Stuart and Carol all through London and Paris, culminating in a cliff-hanging denouement at the Eiffel Tower, and winding up in Rome, with the bad guys in custody and the boy and girl in each other's arms. The film is enjoyably padded with newsreel snippets of the Prince of Wales, Mussolini, Venice and Mt. Vesuvius (many of these clips had previously shown up in the Our Gang comedy Seeing the World).
