Description

Beyond the Rocks (Paramount, 1922). One Sheet (27" X 41").
Heads will be turning and jaws will be dropping with this stunner in your collection! Artist Henry Clive (1881-1960) renders the arresting Gloria Swanson in sumptuous jewel tones against an onyx background, leaving no doubt who was Paramount's brightest star of the day. Beyond the Rocks was destined to be box office gold, with Swanson playing opposite heartthrob Rudolph Valentino in a romantic drama written by the most famous trashy novelist of the era, Elinor Glyn. Swanson is the daughter of aristocrats who force her into marriage with a retired, wealthy man. On her honeymoon she meets a devastatingly handsome nobleman (Valentino) when he saves her from a mountain climbing fall. A torrid affair unfolds, embellished with dreamlike historical flashbacks. Set in a series of splendid locales --Arabia, the Alps, London, and Paris--the film is as enchanting as the extraordinary stone litho one sheet offered here. Signs of light handling include enlarged pinholes in the corners and background, a stain in the right border, and cross fold separation. A first time offer from Heritage, it's the find of a lifetime for collectors! Fine+.
