An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie 7 1/2" x 10" [19 x 25 cm] Key Book Still (Learn More)

Beyond the Rocks, the 1922 Sam Wood silent romantic love triangle melodrama (based on the novel by Elinor Glyn; a wild story of a poor English girl who marries a wealthy elderly man to help her father, but while mountain climbing, she is rescued by a dashing young man who she immediately falls in love with, but he doesn't want to break up her marriage, so he leaves; later, they meet by chance, and realize they are still in love, but she writes a letter to him saying how much she loves him but that they can't be together, and a former girlfriend of her young lover intercepts the letter and sends it to her husband instead; but the husband realizes that he doesn't want to stand in their way, so he goes exploring in Arabia, and is fatally wounded, and before he dies, he gives his blessing to his wife and her boyfriend!) starring Gloria Swanson, Rudolph Valentino (billed as "Rodolph Valentino"), Edythe Chapman, Alec B. Francis, and Robert Bolder. Note that this was Valentino's second movie after "The Sheik", and it was released just six months later, so it was likely in production when "The Sheik" was being made. Consequently, he was second billed on the posters ("with Rodolph Valentino"), and he was still billed under his real name of "Rodolph", and he wasn't even mentioned on the title card. Just a few months later, he became the number one male star, fully on par with Swanson!

Important Added Info: Note that this key book still is similar to later "contact sheets", where it shows ten individual small images from the movie (in this case, they actually placed the stills on a wall and put still code numbers under them and then photographed the display!). Note that this still is a key book still, mounted to a linen backing. Many studios spent extra money to have their most special photos, the key book stills, either backed with linen or printed on a heavy paper, both of which enhanced their durability. They had an extra 1" at the left or top, with punch holes, because of how they were stored. Key book stills are far more rare than regular stills, which has increased their popularity among collectors, since only a few keybooks were manufactured per film, and a key book still is guaranteed to be authentic. Someone trimmed away the extra 1" from the left of the still.

Condition: good. The left 1" was neatly trimmed off (see above). The still is lightly rippled throughout.
