Did You Know?


The AFI Catalogue reports a release date of May 1919. However, a 13 April 1919 article "Written on the Screen" in the New York Times mentions the film was playing at the Broadway, although it was not reviewed. A week later, a similar article mentions it was in its second week at the Broadway. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the time, cast lists were often not in films; actors and their character names were credited in the intertitles right before they appear on-screen. In the 55-minute Milestone Film & Video print, the first 3 important cast members are not introduced in this way, but it is likely they were in the original print (which would have had a running time of 63 minutes at the sound speed of 24 fps). Fot this reason, the IMDb ordering lists these actors first, followed by those who are introduced by intertitles. The Milestone print also had no crew credits; these were taken from the AFI Catalogue. See more »

User Reviews

Archive copy of early Valentino/Murray film exists

The Nederlands Filmmuseum has a print of this extremely rare item from Valentino's seven 1919 films. Four out of the seven films he made during this year are lost. This film also stars Mae Murray and is directed by Robert Z. Leonard, who would make a name for himself in early MGM directorial efforts, most notably directing Norma Shearer into an Oscar-winning performance for THE Divorcée. Good news for Valentino fans- Milestone Films will release this on its DVD disc of BEYOND THE ROCKS, the newly discovered Valentino/Swanson film, formerly thought lost. Release for the Milestone DVD of these two Valentino features is set for the latter part of 2006.
