BEYOND THE ROCKS (1922/2005)

Directed by : Sam WOOD

Year of production : 1922 Country : UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Length : 81 minutes

Synopsis

The discovery of the classic Beyond the Rocks (Sam Wood, 1922) was one of the Filmmuseum Amsterdam's highlights of 2004. This long-lost film about an impossible love affair is the only film in which the legendary Rudolph Valentino plays opposite film diva Gloria Swanson. It was very rare that two stars of such magnitude as Swanson and Valentino were paired together in a silent film. Usually, by casting just one major talent per release, the studios tried to maximize the number of bankable films they produced each year. When Paramount approached Swanson to star with Valentino, the studio intended the assignment to be "punishment" for her demands for greater control. Swanson never let on that the two actors often rode horses together in the Hollywood hills and that she was actually delighted
