    Description

    Beyond the Rocks (Paramount, 1922). Very Good-. Window Card (14" X 22").
    In 1906, British author Elinor Glyn penned a novel about a young woman who begins a torrid affair with a much older nobleman. Paramount chose its reigning queen, Gloria Swanson, for the lead role of this romantic melodrama, and to star opposite, the young up and coming Rudolph Valentino, who had just made a huge sensation the previous year with The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Camille, and The Sheik. This lovely window card is a first time offer at Heritage, and has been professionally restored to address edge wear, pinholes, creases, and a few tears into the interior. There were some small chips at the edges and a chip in Swanson's shoulder. The lower right of the poster had paper loss that extends slightly into Swanson's coat. There were enlarged and torn pinholes in the borders and blue backgrounds. The border, white background, light blue background, imprint area, and verso have been airbrushed. Still visible is some faint staining. Very Good-.


    Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
