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.

"Spanking Breezes" is a short Mack Sennett comedy. We have included this film in our program to illustrate the work and contributions of our star Alice Day.
After her sister Marceline Day left Mack Sennett for feature films, where she shined brilliantly in both comedy and drama, Alice Day became the main star and box-office attraction of Mack Sennett Comedies. She was an extremely popular and very much liked comedienne. Unfortunately very few of her short comedies survive, so let's enjoy "Spanking Breezes".
