O.P. Heggie plays an ageing Parisian book collector who has spent four decades tracking down a rare volume. The trail leads to a small French village, where Heggie meets the daughter (Anne Shirley) of a woman he'd been in love with years earlier. He becomes the girl's guardian, smooths the path of her romance with a local boy (Trent Durkin), finds his precious book, and foils the machinations of villain Etienne Girardot. Chasing Yesterday represents the final screen appearance of Trent Durkin, formerly a child star named Junior Durkin; before 1935 was over, Durkin would be killed in a car accident.
