The Man from Yesterday poster


In The Man From Yesterday (1932), Boyer shared the screen with rising star Claudette Colbert and established leading man Clive Brook. The movie is another variation on the Enoch Arden story of a husband returning home years after being presumed dead. Here it is a shell-shocked soldier (Brook) who returns to wife Colbert, to find that she has turned to French doctor Boyer when she believed her husband was dead.

Although Boyer's performance was one of sensitivity, the film was not a success and did nothing to further his American film career.
