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.

"Little Lord Fauntleroy" is a nice old-fashioned comedy-drama, starring Mary Pickford in a double role.  The star of Silent Hall of Fame Joe Roberts makes a cameo appearance as Buzz Saw Brannigan, an ex-champion and the idol of the neighborhood.

A boy named Cedric (played by Mary Pickford) lives with his widowed mother (also played by Mary Pickford).  By a trick of circumstance he becomes the legal heir to an English nobleman.  Cedric meets his grumpy old grandfather, who lives in a big cold castle and is estranged to him and his mother.  Will Cedric's spirit of youth be able to melt the old man's heart and make him reconsider his life priorities?

The film enjoys a very nice rating in IMDB.
