Lost and Found: The restoration of Beyond The Rocks

Beyond The Rocks was released in 1922 and stars Rudoloph Valentino and Gloria Swanson. It was considered a lost film until a nitrate print was discovered in the Netherlands in 2003. The Dutch Filmmuseum (which is now the EYE and a must-see for any cinefile visiting Amsterdam) had the pleasure of being able to restore the film and re-release it. In this video, they explain the process of restoring a privately kept ‘lost’ film.
