Summary
A young woman is tricked into an arranged marriage with an older millionaire by her female relatives, and then falls in love with a handsome nobleman as she honeymoons in the Alps and Paris. Discovering that his wife loves another, the husband rushes off to the Sahara. In 2003, Beyond the rocks was rediscovered at the Nederlands Filmmuseum, after being considered lost for decades. The nitrite print was virtually complete, and had Dutch intertitles. It was restored, a new score was composed and new English intertitles added, based on the original continuity script.
