Rudolph Valentino aboard the S.S. Leviathan, November 1924.

Valentino caused a frenzy when he returned from Europe with a beard. The following announcement was issued by the Associated Master Barbers: “Our members are pledged not to attend a showing of Rudolph Valentino’s photoplays as long as he remains bewhiskered.” There was fear that the ‘male population of America is very likely to be guided by Valentino to the extent of making whiskers fashionable again,” and that “such a fashion would not only work harmful injury to barbers, but would so utterly deface America, as to make Americans difficult to distinguish from Russians.” Because of the public outcry and pressure, Valentino shaved off his beard.

Beyond the Rocks was long considered lost but in 2000 the Netherlands Film Museum inherited the collection of the 87-year-old Joop Van Liempd, which consisted of 2000 cans of film. It was almost three years before the entire six reels of

Beyond the Rocks was discovered. The film was restored and screened at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. It was released on DVD by Milestone Film & Video in 2006.
