Movie Info

In this film, wealthy New Yorker John Boles recalls a long-ago affair with southern belle Margaret Sullavan. She gave birth to his child, then moved to New York herself. As the stock-market crash of 1929 wipes out his life savings, Boles becomes remorseful over how he's forgotten Sullavan.

Audience Reviews for Only Yesterday


Preposterous, creaky old chestnut saved almost totally by a beautiful Margaret Sullavan, in her screen bow, performance. The other saving grace is lovely work by Billie Burke otherwise there are many better films dealing with the unwed mother trope. The ending is terribly abrupt.
