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.
Harry Carey and Claire McDowell

"The Wanderer" is a short drama. The film is included in our program to illustrate the work of our star Billy Bitzer.
A man apparently loses all interest in life and starts wandering around. His useless existence is interrupted for one day, when a woman gives him food and he finds a way to repay her.
All film sites cite a film "The Wanderer" (1913) directed by D.W. Griffith and starring Henry B. Walthall as the Wanderer, who also plays a flute. As you can see, in our film there is no flute and Henry B. Walthall does not act.
The film that we show matches the description of "Olaf - An Atom" (1913) directed by Anthony O’Sullivan, also a Biograph Company production, and starring Harry Carey.
The opening titles show "The Wanderer" and we will leave it as it is. When and if a film shows up with the title "The Wanderer" (1913) directed by D.W. Griffith starring Henry B. Walthall as the Wanderer, we will revisit this issue and clarify the mystery.
Below is a short preview of the film.
