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.

"Three Ages" is a sparkling comedy, included in our program to celebrate the work and contributions of our star Joe Roberts.
"Three Ages" is Buster Keaton's first feature film. Before that he created 19 amazing short comedies and Joe Roberts was his partner in 16 of them.
"Three Ages" tries to prove the point that love has not changed throughout human history, on the example of the stone age, the Roman civilization and modern times.
