Beyond the Rocks was the only screen pairing of silent film legends Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino. The image depicts a rare on-set publicity shot of Valentino sharking hands with the film's director, Sam Wood, as his co-star, Gloria Swanson, peeks at the camera from underneath Valentino's outstretched arm. "Madame" Eleanor Glynn, who wrote the novel upon which this film was based, is seated behind Wood's outstretched arm. Behind Valentino is the 35mm Bell & Howell motion picture camera which was used to photograph this film. This vintage original still photograph is in very fine- condition with a portion of the photograph's negative number handwritten in pencil in the white border below it. Vintage original 8 x 1 in. (20.3 x 25.4 cm.) U.S. single-weight gelatin silver glossy still photograph (NN: 430-2/28), very fine- condition and rare.
