Valley of the Giants is a 1919 American silent romantic drama film directed by James Cruze and starring Wallace Reid and Grace Darmond. Based on Peter B. Kyne's popular 1918 novel of the same name, the film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed through Paramount Pictures.[1]



The film was shot on locations in Humboldt County, California.[2]


This film was presumed lost for 90 years until 2010 when a print was returned to the United States from Russia's Gosfilmofond archive. Flash titles or Russian language intertitles are in the process of being restored back into English by the Library of Congress.[3]
