Dear Silent Hall of Fame Users:
You have come to this website, because you like silent films and silent movie stars. There are many places like this. But unlike other sites, here at Silent Hall of Fame you can make a real difference. You can help us show for the first time many films featuring your favorite silent stars that have not been seen in generations. This will bring their names back into the public discourse. But you can do much more than that: you can help your favorite silent stars receive belated recognition and glory.
Until now there has never been an organization with the purpose to place a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for movie personalities from a century ago. Silent Hall of Fame is this historic organization. Silent Hall of Fame is the only organization of its kind. We will make history and we invite you to become a part of history by sponsoring a silent movie star for the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All contributions are tax deductible.

"Faithful" is a short comedy directed by D.W. Griffith. The film is included in our program to illustrate the work of two of our stars: actor Arthur V. Johnson and cinematographer Billy Bitzer.
Faithful is a man's name and there are no love triangles in the film. Adonese (Arthur Johnson) is returning from a date when his car accidentally brushes against and knocks down a simple man by the name of Faithful (Mack Sennett). Adonese gives the man money and buys him a new suit. Faithful is very impressed and starts following his benefactor everywhere. Adonese tries hard to get rid of him, but everything is in vain. Then dramatic events occur, which make Adonese reassess his attitude.
