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.
