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.
We have included this film in our program to illustrate the work and contributions of our star Florence Turner.
"Twelfth Night" (1910), produced by Vitagraph and directed by Charles Kent, is a short film based on the comedy of Shakespeare.
Viola (Florence Turner) is saved after a shipwreck and ends up dressed in man's clothes in the domains of a certain duke. Viola becomes his servant and one day is asked to take a letter to duke's love interest Olivia. The latter, seeing a boy bring the message, suddenly falls in love with Viola.
Viola seems in trouble and doesn't know how to dissipate the tension in the air, but gets help from an unexpected source. All of a sudden her twin brother, thought lost at sea, shows up. All identities are revealed, all misunderstandings sorted out and everybody finds someone to love.
