  • About Us

    Marceline Day in The Boyfriend 1926

       "Marceline Day is not only sitting pretty in the window - she is also sitting pretty at the top of the celluloid ladder, a fact you can discover for yourself  when you see her in "The Boy Friend" (1926)" - a text in Motion Picture Classic below a full-page picture.

     

    Mission Statement

    The Mission of Silent Hall of Fame is to engage classic film lovers worldwide in an effort to preserve the names of distinguished silent movie stars for future generations by educating the public about their great artistic legacy and working tirelessly to bring them the full public respect and recognition that they rightfully deserve.

     

    The best way to learn about Silent Hall of Fame and its mission is to watch our multiple award-winning documentary.


    What is Silent Hall of Fame?

    We are a dedicated team of volunteer silent movie enthusiasts committed to bringing the names and legacy of many distinguished pioneers of motion pictures back from oblivion. We promote specifically the artistic achievements of formerly illustrious personalities from the silent age of movies, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the world but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    We are tired of hearing slogans like "Give Shirley Mason her star", or "Give Marceline Day her star".  Appeals like that are not enough any more. We believe that the time has come to stop talking about it and start doing something about it. We realize that the road ahead may have many challenges, but we are full of determination to forge ahead, because we know that this is the right thing to do.

    We believe that the current generation of actors and actresses stand on the shoulders of all those magnificent stars of the past, who worked in difficult conditions without technical tricks to create masterpieces of movie art.  And we believe that many silent pioneers have yet to earn the full public respect, love and recognition that they so rightfully deserve.  This is exactly what we aim to achieve. 

    We also believe that the public has the full legitimate right to see the lost and forgotten masterpieces of the Silent Era.  We will defend and promote this right by doing everything possible to recover these masterpieces from the hidden vaults, bring them out into the open, and show them to the world audiences, where they belong.


    Why Silent Hall of Fame?

    • Silent Hall of Fame refers to the silent period of movies.
    • These stars are silent because they are gone and can't speak for themselves so we have to do it for them.
    • These stars are silent, like in "silenced", because they have been denied proper recognition.
    • In the end, even though it is an unofficial (silent) hall of fame, we do say that these stars deserve fame and glory as the officially glorified ones.

    Of course, in our Silent Hall of Fame there will be no place for all those actors, actresses and directors that already have Hollywood stars or Oscars.  We will take care of the overlooked, the under-rated, the under-respected, the under-recognized and the all-but-forgotten stars that we believe have made more than enough "contribution to the motion pictures industry" and should be equally respected and rewarded with fame and recognition.

    We cannot do this alone. Every fan can make a contribution to Silent Hall of Fame and help us to revive the names and legacy of our amazing silent stars and bring them belated recognition and glory.  Please see the information on our How You can Help page.

     

    Here is a very efficient way to help Silent Hall of Fame:

    Many major employers have programs that match their employees' donations to charitable organizations like Silent Hall of Fame. Such employers are big banks like Bank of America and US Bank, and large companies such as Chevron, Microsoft, etc. If you work for one of these employers and you donate to Silent Hall of Fame your tax-deductible contribution will be doubled and will go a long way towards helping your favorite silent star to receive better public recognition. Here is a list of Companies that Match Donations and/or Volunteer Hours.



    IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR US DONORS ABOUT TAX DEDUCTIBILITY OF FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

        We are a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation, organized under the Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). 

        With a letter from August 1, 2013 the Internal Revenue Service informed us that we are exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and that contributions to Silent Hall of Fame are tax deductible.  Silent Hall of Fame is also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts.

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR CANADIAN DONORS ABOUT TAX DEDUCTIBILITY OF FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS

    ALL FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS AND GIFTS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE TO THE DONORS.

        Three of the stars of Silent Hall of Fame were born in Canada: actress Florence Lawrence, director John Robertson and actress, writer and director Nell Shipman.  As with all our stars, we show their films and aim to bring them the full public recognition that they deserve, including stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  This is why we expect that Canadian silent film lovers will support Silent Hall of Fame.

        We also show films with the brightest star of all - Canadian Mary Pickford.  Furthermore, some sources argue that another star of Silent Hall of Fame, Florence La Badie, was born in Canada, and even call her "a Canadian Movie Icon".

     

        With a letter from November 20, 2013 the Canada Revenue Agency informed us that Silent Hall of Fame qualifies under Article XXI(1) of the Canada – United States Income Tax Convention (1980) for exemption from Canadian withholding tax. We have been told by the Canada Revenue Agency that if a prospective Canadian donor has further questions about the tax deductibility of contributions to Silent Hall of Fame, they should contact their International Tax Services Office (tel.:1-855-284-5946) and inquire with identification number 172746.  The Canada Revenue Agency is in possession of the Articles of Incorporation of Silent Hall of Fame and the IRS letter granting us a tax exempt and public charity status.

    FOR PHILANTHROPISTS: YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS CRUCIAL FOR THE SUCCESS OF OUR MISSION

        Silent Hall of Fame is a young and energetic nonprofit organization, which runs this website for the public benefit and in the public interest. We have very limited volunteer staff, but serve users around the world.

        Silent Hall of Fame is unique. It is the only place where we actively work to bring the names and legacy of formerly illustrious, but unrewarded with proper recognition silent stars back from oblivion and strive to bring them belated fame and respect. Our ultimate goal is to place a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for all silent movie personalities featured on this website.

        We also fight for your right, the right of the public, to see silent masterpieces that have been kept in hidden vaults for far too long.  We have located hundreds of films featuring our stars that we want to show you for free on our website.

        To cover our minimum expenses for rent, utilities, servers, website maintenance and support, gas, postage, office supplies and various fees we need about $15,000 annually.

        We further need funding for our program expenses such as movie acquisition fees, copyright check fees, access fees and transfer fees.  We need your generous support to bring out into the open and show to the public many silent films-masterpieces that are available in archives around the world and wait to be reconnected with the classic film lovers after many decades.  Some films cost a few hundred dollars, others cost thousands of dollars - you can find examples in the pages "What We Do" and "How You Can Help".

        We also need funding for our ultimate goal - to place a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for the stars of Silent Hall of Fame.  We do believe that they deserve this recognition for their outstanding contributions to the Motion Pictures industry, the country and the world.  Each nomination currently costs $30,000, which is the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce fee.  Again, we are all volunteers, we do not get paid salaries but give our hearts out to bring belated recognition to these amazing silent stars.

        We can't succeed without your help.  If you share our vision and noble purpose, please support our efforts.  All contributions are tax deductible.  Apart from cash donations, Silent Hall of Fame is also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts.  We accept any non-cash contributions in the form of securities, jewelry, art, real property, vehicles, as well as music, film and book royalties.

         You can verify our tax exempt and Public Charity status by checking the IRS Business Master File of organizations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions here.  If you have any questions for us, please do not hesitate to send us a message through the "Contact Us" page.

        When you make a contribution to Silent Hall of Fame you will obtain many tangible and intangible benefits, such as:

      1/ You support a worthy cause and you get the moral satisfaction of helping your favorite silent movie star to receive belated recognition and glory.
      2/ All contributions are tax deductible, so you can reduce your taxes.
      3/ When our star gets a place on the Hollywood Walk of Fame his or her name will become history forever, and so will the contributors who have supported their nomination.  Silent Hall of Fame can make public the list of donors and etch their names in history as well.

        If you are a private philanthropist, who likes to support worthy causes, please consider making a tax deductible contribution to Silent Hall of Fame.  You may remain anonymous if you so desire.

        If you are a successful private business with philanthropic programs for charitable giving, please consider making a tax deductible contribution to Silent Hall of Fame.

        If you are a private foundation giving grants to tax-exempt public charities, please consider inviting  Silent Hall of Fame to apply for a grant and receive your support.

        If you are a public charity and have funds for charitable giving, please consider making a tax deductible contribution to Silent Hall of Fame.

    Here is a very efficient way to help Silent Hall of Fame:

    Many major employers have programs that match their employees' donations to charitable organizations like Silent Hall of Fame. Such employers are big banks like Bank of America and US Bank, and large companies such as Chevron, Microsoft, etc. If you work for one of these employers and you donate to Silent Hall of Fame your tax-deductible contribution will be doubled and will go a long way towards helping your favorite silent star to receive better public recognition. Here is a list of Companies that Match Donations and/or Volunteer Hours.

     

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FILMS KEPT IN ARCHIVES IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD

         As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the legacy of our stars we seek to recover their rare films from archives in the USA and round the world. We are happy to report that as a result of our extensive research we have found hundreds of films featuring our stars.  All these films are waiting to be reconnected with the public after many, many years.  Most of the movies have not been seen by any silent movie lovers for three or four generations.
        You can help us acquire these films and show them on our website with your tax-deductible contribution.  This will help your favorite silent movie personalities receive better public recognition, and in the future, improve their chances to get a nomination for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Because none of these films are available for viewing anywhere else, this will also help your favorite website, Silent Hall of Fame, become really unique in the quest to bring back from oblivion the names of your favorite silent movie stars.
        Here are some of the films that we located in archives that currently are not available for viewing anywhere.  We want to show them to you, the classic movie lovers of the world:

    His New York Wife (1926) featuring our star Alice Day,
    Fools of Fashion (1926) featuring our star Marceline Day,
    The Black Horse Bandit (1919)  featuring our star Helen Gibson,
    Life in the Balance (1915) featuring our star Helen Holmes,
    Her Shattered Idol (1915) featuring our star Robert Harron,
    Her Child's Honor (1911) featuring our stars Florence Lawrence and Arthur V. Johnson,
    Queen of the Moulin Rouge (1922)  featuring our star Martha Mansfield,
    Baby Mine (1917) featuring our star John S. Robertson,
    The Deerslayer (1913) featuring our star Florence Turner,

    Tropical Nights (1928) featuring our star Patsy Ruth Miller.


    In case some of you are wondering why some reviews have films but other don't, here is an explanation:

    1/ we cannot show you those films that are lost or destroyed, probably forever.  In these cases we show you in a slide all available stills that have survived, and include whenever possible, contemporary reviews of the films telling details about what actually happens.  Examples of such lost films are "The Big City" (1928), "The Barrier" (1926), "The Boy Friend" (1926), "The Road to Romance" (1927) and many others.

    2/ we cannot show you those films that although surviving and available are still copyrighted.  Examples of such films are "The Wind" (1928), "Captain Salvation" (1927), "He Who Gets Slapped" (1924), "The Smart Set" (1928) and many others.

    3/ we cannot show you those films that although surviving are unavailable, because companies and institutions keep them locked. Examples of such films are "Rookies" (1927) and "Detectives" (1928), which Warner Bros. keeps locked in a vault and refuses to give us a copy, and "College Days" (1926), which is locked in UCLA.

    4/ we cannot show you those films that although surviving are unavailable, because they exist only in the form of the original reels and transferring them to a DVD costs a lot of money.  Some are abroad and some are in the USA. Here is just one example: Holland has the film "Under The Black Eagle" (1928).  They have a nitrate film and want 6,000 Euros ($8,000) to make a DVD copy.  

    If you want to help us show you more silent masterpieces, please make a tax-deductible contribution.

    Only 30% of the Silent Era films survive and virtually all of these have varying degrees of imperfections. We believe that it is better to show to the film lovers a hundred imperfect films now, than to make them wait for decades to see one perfectly restored film. The films from our Silent Gems Collection vary in print quality from acceptable to very good and excellent. A few films have a grainy image, but are perfectly watchable. A few films miss a scene or two, because some parts of the film are lost. For a detailed description of every film print you can see our Silent Gems Collection on eBay. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

    The movies are accompanied by quality music that greatly enhances the viewing experience. Every DVD comes in a slim jewel case and has the cover art exactly as you see it on the photo above.

    We will be adding many more rare and hard to find movies, so check back often.  You can also subscribe to our newsletter (on the left-hand side of the page) and receive updates about new additions to our Silent Gems Collection.

    Here is a very efficient way to help Silent Hall of Fame:

    Many major employers have programs that match their employees' donations to charitable organizations like Silent Hall of Fame. Such employers are big banks like Bank of America and US Bank, and large companies such as Chevron, Microsoft, etc. If you work for one of these employers and you donate to Silent Hall of Fame your tax-deductible contribution will be doubled and will go a long way towards helping your favorite silent star to receive better public recognition. Here is a list of Companies that Match Donations and/or Volunteer Hours.


    IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FILMS KEPT IN ARCHIVES IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD

         As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the legacy of our stars we seek to recover their rare films from archives in the USA and round the world. We are happy to report that as a result of our extensive research we have found hundreds of films featuring our stars.  All these films are waiting to be reconnected with the public after many, many years.  Most of the movies have not been seen by any silent movie lovers for three or four generations.
        You can help us acquire these films and show them on our website with your tax-deductible contribution.  This will help your favorite silent movie personalities receive better public recognition, and in the future, improve their chances to get a nomination for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Because none of these films are available for viewing anywhere else, this will also help your favorite website, Silent Hall of Fame, become really unique in the quest to bring back from oblivion the names of your favorite silent movie stars.
        Here are some of the films that we located in archives that currently are not available for viewing anywhere.  We want to show them to you, the classic movie lovers of the world:

    His New York Wife (1926) featuring our star Alice Day,
    Fools of Fashion (1926) featuring our star Marceline Day,
    The Black Horse Bandit (1919)  featuring our star Helen Gibson,

    Dear Silent Hall of Fame users,

        Silent Hall of Fame invites all classic film lovers to see our award-winning documentary.
        The purpose of the film is to let the public know about Silent Hall of Fame and its efforts to restore the legacy and bring belated recognition to distinguished silent film personalities who have not been rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
        We envision this film as the initial step that will bring the mission of Silent Hall of Fame to a broader audience and gain more supporters. We intend to create a feature biographical documentary in the near future, as soon as the necessary funds become available.
        You can become a part of this effort by making a tax-deductible contribution to help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.

     

    How You Can Help

    There is much that you can do to help us here at Silent Hall of Fame. Below are just some of the ways that you can contribute to our success. Please remember that our success is your success, too. By helping us you will realize your own dreams of having your favorite star receive respect, love and public recognition.

    • You can make a tax-deductible contribution to help us find and show to you the films of your beloved star(s), and support our fight to preserve the name and legacy of your favorite silent movie personality for future generations. You can do this either by credit card, using the "Donate" button, or mailing a check to the address on our Contact Us page. Our team of volunteers works long hours to promote our mission.  We do not get paid salaries, but there are many expenses that we have to cover: rent, utilities, insurance, fees, gas, postage, office supplies, website maintenance and support, band fees, movie acquisition fees, such as copyright check fees, access fees and transfer fees.  We can't succeed without your support. 
    • Here are examples of our film expenses, for which we need your help:
           We discovered that the EYE Film Institute in the Netherlands has the only copy in the world of the film Under the Black Eagle (1928), but has asked for $8,000 to make a digital copy on DVD.  We need your help to fund the repatriation of this film so that we can show it to the public for free.   
          We also discovered that the National Archive in Paris France has the only copy in the world of the films Indiscreet Corrine (1917) and The Spite Bride (1919), but has asked for $6,000 to make a digital copy on DVD.  We need your help to fund the repatriation of these films so that we can show them to the public for free. 
          The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) has 60 films freaturing the stars of Silent Hall of Fame.  Their price is $5,000 for each feature film.  We need your help to fund the acquisition of these films so that we can show them to the public.
           The Library of Congress has many films with our stars, and charges $1,200 for each feature film.  We need your help to fund the acquisition of these films so that we can show them to the public.
           All these finds were the result of our initial research.  As we expand the scope of our investigation we will locate many more lost and misplaced masterpieces. 
    • We are asking our users to help us find some rare films so that we can show them for free on our website.  The list of films that we are looking for is posted under the Free Movies top menu item in an article entitled Help Us Find These Films.
    • We need volunteers to do internet research.  This is a win-win situation both for us and for you.  For those who have yet to start a full-time job,  volunteer work counts as job experience and we will be happy to provide a work reference.  For those who are between jobs, working as a volunteer is a great way to fill gaps in the work history.  For those who are retired, volunteer work is a great way to support your favorite silent star.
    • If you are a descendant or a relative of any of our stars, or if you know the whereabouts of such descendant or relative, please contact us.  We would like to discuss with you how we can bring recognition to our stars in a joint effort.
    • You can spread the word about Silent Hall of Fame and its efforts to bring back the names and legacy of silent movie stars back from oblivion: talk to your friends, neighbors, colleagues, associates and put a nice word about us in your blogs, panels, forums and discussion boards.
    • You can contribute to building this site by sending us photos of your favorite star(s).
    • You can volunteer to write a biographical article for your favorite star(s).
    • You can offer your time to volunteer and help us source fundraising opportunities.
    • We appreciate the contributions of movie industry professionals. If you are a writer, a journalist or a historian who has written or is working on books or articles about silent movie personalities, we would like to hear from you. Please introduce yourself and tell us about your work and how you support the idea of bringing the names and legacy of under-rated but illustrious silent stars back from oblivion.
    • You can write letters or send emails to Warner, Fox, Paramount, etc. urging these big companies to release the silent films that they keep in their vaults to Silent Hall of Fame or make them available to the public. Specifically, Warner keeps copies of the wonderful and critically acclaimed comedy "Rookies" (1927), as well as "Detectives" (1928).
    • You can write letters or send emails to the Library of Congress urging them to help repatriate silent films that we have identified in foreign archives. Specifically, the British Film Institute holds the only known copy in the world of the film "Fools of Fashion" (1926), but has refused to make a copy available to Silent Hall of Fame.
    • Silent Hall of Fame also discovered that George Eastman House has the only copy in the world of 5 rare films, including Madcap Madge (1917), Broadway Arizona (1917), The Follies Girl (1919), Everybody's Sweetheart (1920) and War and the Woman (1917).  They refused to let us borrow copies of these films so that we can show them for free on our website, without giving any reasons why.  Writing to George Eastman House may help persuade them to make a copy of the films available to Silent Hall of Fame or make them available to the public.  
    • You can make suggestions to us which films of your favorite star(s) that are not available on DVD you would like us to look for in domestic and international archives.
    • You can send us by mail photos, home movies and other memorabilia that you believe may be important for our research of the legacy of your favorite star(s).
    • And yes, you can make a tax-deductible financial contribution if you can afford it, did we mention this? Making a donation can be very rewarding: first, you feel good about helping your favorite star(s) and second, by doing so you may also be able to reduce your taxes! It doesn't get any better than this, does it?

    Here are two easy ways to help Silent Hall of Fame at no cost to you.

    1/ If you buy stuff at Amazon you can help us at no cost to you. Amazon has set up a charitable foundation called AmazonSmile, which will donate to Silent Hall of Fame an amount equal to 0.5% of the purchase price that you pay. When you register please select Silent Hall of Fame as the charitable organization that you want to support.

    2/ eBay has a program called Giving Works.  If you sell or buy stuff on eBay you can use it to raise funds for Silent Hall of Fame. Again, please select Silent Hall of Fame as the charitable organization that you want to support.

        You can become a part of this effort by making a tax-deductible contribution to help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.

     

    Here is a very efficient way to help Silent Hall of Fame:

    Many major employers have programs that match their employees' donations to charitable organizations like Silent Hall of Fame. Such employers are big banks like Bank of America and US Bank, and large companies such as Chevron, Microsoft, etc. If you work for one of these employers and you donate to Silent Hall of Fame your tax-deductible contribution will be doubled and will go a long way towards helping your favorite silent star to receive better public recognition. Here is a list of Companies that Match Donations and/or Volunteer Hours.

     

    Here is another easy way to help Silent Hall of Fame at no cost to you:

    If you buy stuff at Amazon you can help us at no cost to you. Amazon has set up a charitable foundation called AmazonSmile, which will donate to Silent Hall of Fame an amount equal to 0.5% of the purchase price that you pay. When you register please select Silent Hall of Fame as the charitable organization that you want to support.

    INFORMATION ABOUT FILMS KEPT IN ARCHIVES IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD

        As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the legacy of our stars we seek to recover their rare films from dusty archives in the USA and round the world. We are happy to report that as a result of our extensive research we have found about 200 films featuring our stars.  All these films are waiting to be reconnected with the public after many, many years.  Most of the movies have not been seen by any silent movie lovers for three or four generations.
        You can help us acquire these films and show them for free on our website with your tax-deductible contribution.  This will help your favorite silent movie personality to receive better public recognition, and in the future, improve its chances to get a nomination for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Because none of these films are available for viewing anywhere else, this will also help your favorite website, Silent Hall of Fame, to become really unique in the quest to bring back from oblivion the names of your favorite silent movie stars.

    We discovered that George Eastman House holds the only copies in the world of five extremely rare films - four featuring our star Olive Thomas and one featuring our star Florence La Badie:

    MADCAP MADGE 1917                          starring Olive Thomas
    BROADWAY ARIZONA 1917                 starring Olive Thomas
    THE FOLLIES GIRL 1919                         starring Olive Thomas
    EVERYBODY'S SWEETHEART 1920      starring Olive Thomas, her last film before her untimely death, released posthumously.
    WAR AND THE WOMAN 1917                starring Florence La Badie, her last but one film before her untimely death.

    We asked George Eastman House to let us borrow from them copies of these films, so that we can show them to you, our esteemed users, absolutely free.  George Eastman House refused our request without giving any reasons.  You can write and email to George Eastman House and urge them to give copies of these films to Silent Hall of Fame.

    Dear Silent Hall of Fame users,

        Silent Hall of Fame invites all classic film lovers to see our award-winning documentary.
        The purpose of the film is to let the public know about Silent Hall of Fame and its efforts to restore the legacy and bring belated recognition to distinguished silent film personalities who have not been rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
        We envision this film as the initial step that will bring the mission of Silent Hall of Fame to a broader audience and gain more supporters. We intend to create a feature biographical documentary in the near future, as soon as the necessary funds become available.
        You can become a part of this effort by making a tax-deductible contribution to help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.

     

    We are asking our users to help us find some rare films so that we can show them for free on our website.  The list of films that we are looking for is posted under the Free Movies top menu item in an article entitled Help Us Find These Films

     

    PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION

    We have started a new petition and we need your help to obtain many silent films that have not been seen in a century and show them to you for free.

    The UCLA keeps locked in their archives many quality silent films featuring our stars Billy Bitzer, Alice Day, Marceline Day, Snitz Edwards, Helen Gibson, Robert Harron, Helen Holmes, Jack Hoxie, Arthur V. Johnson, Florence La Badie, Florence Lawrence, Shirley Mason, John S. Robertson, Patsy Ruth Miller and Florence Turner. These films have not been seen by the classic movie lovers in almost a century. 

    PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO THE UCLA TO RELEASE COPIES OF THE RARE FILMS TO SILENT HALL OF FAME OR MAKE THESE FILMS AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC ANY OTHER WAY THEY DEEM APPROPRIATE.

    Our earlier petition to the George Eastman House for 33 rare silent films is still active.
    PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION TO THE GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE TO RELEASE COPIES OF RARE FILMS TO SILENT HALL OF FAME OR MAKE THESE FILMS AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC ANY OTHER WAY THEY DEEM APPROPRIATE.


    IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FILMS KEPT IN ARCHIVES IN THE US AND AROUND THE WORLD

         As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the legacy of our stars we seek to recover their rare films from dusty archives in the USA and round the world. We are happy to report that as a result of our extensive research we have found hundreds of films featuring our stars.  All these films are waiting to be reconnected with the public after many, many years.  Most of the movies have not been seen by any silent movie lovers for three or four generations.
        You can help us acquire these films and show them for free on our website with your tax-deductible contribution.  This will help your favorite silent movie personalities receive better public recognition, and in the future, improve their chances to get a nomination for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Because none of these films are available for viewing anywhere else, this will also help your favorite website, Silent Hall of Fame, become really unique in the quest to bring back from oblivion the names of your favorite silent movie stars.
        Here are some of the films that we located in archives that currently are not available for viewing anywhere.  We want to show them to you, the classic movie lovers of the world:

    His New York Wife (1926) featuring our star Alice Day,
    Fools of Fashion (1926) featuring our star Marceline Day,
    The Black Horse Bandit (1919)  featuring our star Helen Gibson,
    Life in the Balance (1915) featuring our star Helen Holmes,
    Her Shattered Idol (1915) and A Child of the Paris Streets (1916) featuring our star Robert Harron,

    Update - 12/08/2013.

    Important news about the film "College Days" (1926)

    The UCLA has promised to make the film available for free until the end of 2014.  We thank all those viewers who signed the petition and helped this happen.

    In particular, the UCLA writes:

    "...understanding that there is a significant demand in the public for this title, we will promise to make the film available for free for streaming on our website within a year."

    Update - 04/0//2015

    The UCLA will not make this, or any other film available to us as we hoped. The UCLA has instituted a policy of charging $5,000 for any feature film that they have in their possession. You can help bring silent films out of archives, where they have been kept for generations away from the classic film lovers, by signing THE PETITION TO THE UCLA.

     

    UPDATE:

    We discovered in a French archive the only copies in the world of two extremely rare films starring Olive Thomas - Indiscreet Corinne and The Spite Bride.  The French want $6,000 to digitize them and send us a copy.  These two films are not available in the US and have not been seen in close to a century.  We have the unique opportunity to acquire these rare films and show them to you on our website. You can help us achieve this goal with your tax-deductible contribution. 

     

    Our initial search for lost or unavailable films included 30 titles from the last 5 years of the Silent Age (1925-1929).  We have considerably narrowed down the unknowns.  These are the results that we can report:

      • We know that a firm in Paris, France has a nitrate copy of the film The Wall Street Whiz (1925).  We don't know if we will be able to buy a copy and show it on our website, because they only mention "serious amounts of money", without quoting a number.
      • We know that the British Film Institute has Fools of Fashion (1926), but refuses to make a copy for us.  We don't know if we will be able to buy a copy and show it on our website.  We have asked the Library of Congress for help to repatriate a copy of this film.  We have also asked our users to help us by writing to the Library of Congress.
      • We know that The Dutch Film Institute has the film Under The Black Eagle (1928).  They have a nitrate film and want 6,000 Euros ($8,000) to make a DVD copy.  We don't know if we will be able to obtain a copy and show it on our website.  We have asked the Library of Congress for financial help; if we don't receive such assistance, other priorities may prevent us from paying such amount of money for one film.
      • We know that Warner Bros. has another critically acclaimed film - Rookies (1927), but they refuse to make a copy for us, although they don't intend to release a DVD to the public.  We don't know if we will be able to acquire a copy and show it on our website.  We have asked our users to help us by writing to Warner and urging them to either release the film on DVD or license the film to Silent Hall of Fame so that we can show it on our website.
      • We know that Warner Bros. has another film - Detectives (1928). Same story as for Rookies (1927).
      • We know that the Library of Congress has the film The Jazz Age (1929), and they are ready to make a copy.  We don't know when we will be able to buy a copy, because undetermined copyright issues with Warner have blocked the process.  The cost to buy a copy and show it on our website will be around $1,200. You can help us achieve this goal with your tax-deductible contribution.
      • We know that the Library of Congress has the film Trent's Last Case (1929), and they are ready to make a copy for Silent Hall of Fame.  The cost to buy the film and show it on our website will be around $1,200. You can help us achieve this goal with your tax-deductible contribution.

    Apart from finding these 9 films, we obtained information about other films, which clarifies what is available and what is not, and corrects wrong information in the FIAF database and other sources about these films.

      • Freedom of the Press (1928) - Italy has only the trailer.
      • The Road to Romance (1927) - New Zealand has only 16 seconds of opening titles.  We also know that Warner does not have any footage available of this film.
      • The Big City (1928) - UCLA has only the trailer.
      • Stolen Love (1928) - the Library of Congress had it listed as available in their archive; upon our inquiry it turned out that that listing was a mistake.
      • London After Midnight (1927) - we know that Warner does not have any footage available of this film.
      • A Certain Young Man (1928) - we know that Warner does not have any footage available of this film.
      • A Single Man (1929)  - we know that Warner does not have any footage available of this film.

    Thus, we were able to obtain information about 17 of the 30 films in our initial research - a 57% success rate.

    We have a strong and resourceful team, which is constantly finding new ways to find lost films and bring them to you, the user, absolutely free.  Just recently our Vice President came up with a brilliant idea, which, when realized, will enable Silent Hall of Fame to show you another forgotten masterpiece free on our website.

    We believe that we are on the right track, because our efforts for finding lost films are bringing results.  We have asked you, the users, to help us with suggestions which other films not available on DVD you would like us to look for in domestic and international archives.  We have also asked you, the users, to help us with your financial support so that we can continue our mission and bring more silent masterpieces from the forgotten vaults to the public, where they belong.

    Bravo! - John Klein, relative of our star Marceline Day (email message)

    I am delighted by the entire theme, production, music and film clips. Your documentary brings a new awareness to the public of other silent film stars who deserve recognition while also mentioning the fact of lost films and the need to restore the films that are in storage. - Nina Roberts, grand-daughter of our star Joe Roberts (email message)

    Hi Alex, thank you so much for sending me the link. I just watched it - very professionally made, and there is some amazing footage from silent movies with breathtaking stunts. - Shirley Freitas, great-granddaughter of our star Helen Holmes (email message)

    Well done promotion for forgotten silent stars and the need to preserve their memories…I will post on my FB page. - Ned Thanhouser, Director and Producer, grandson of Edwin Thanhouser,  the founder of the Thanhouser Company (email message)

    Mary-Ann and I just watched it and I have to say we are both very impressed.  Very well done, it was very professional, you sounded well spoken and to the point. We really liked that you had the young people watching the films and then commenting on them, also the narrator driving with the lady in the end in the old car was a nice touch. Overall, we both thought it was very well done and inspiring!!! - Vassil Staykov (email message)


    Wow, totally impressive Alex! Thanks for sharing that film with me, it is awesome! - Jimbo Berkey (email message)

    Hi Alex, thanks for the link.  I watched it this morning.  Fantastic Job!- A. Michael Aus (email message)

    I saw your documentary on silent era pioneers and loved it! Keep up your great work of recognizing the wonderful stars of the silent era! - silentmoviequeen (at YouTube)

    Saw it, loved it - thanks so much! - alvisrocks (at NitrateVille)

    Your documentary does a fine job emphasizing the importance of not only preserving silent films, but keeping them in circulation so that younger viewers can witness an important part of history unfold. Excellent work. - Zach Snow (email message)

    Watched it as soon as I got your email—what a lovely film! I will put a link to it on our library guide for videos. Thank you! - Leigh Rockey (email message)

    I absolutely adored the documentary! Seeing so many of my favorite stars being shown was just incredible. And the end with Marceline Day's name imposed onto the star? Goosebumps! - Jessica Wahl (email message)

    Dear Silent Hall of Fame users,

        Silent Hall of Fame invites all classic film lovers to see our award-winning documentary.
        The purpose of the film is to let the public know about Silent Hall of Fame and its efforts to restore the legacy and bring belated recognition to distinguished silent film personalities who have not been rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
        We envision this film as the initial step that will bring the mission of Silent Hall of Fame to a broader audience and gain more supporters. We intend to create a feature biographical documentary in the near future, as soon as the necessary funds become available.
        You can become a part of this effort by making a tax-deductible contribution to help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.

     

    What We Do

    Our purpose is to preserve the names and legacy of all distinguished silent movie personalities, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the world, but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Silent Hall of Fame will have a great membership of such stars, suggested by our esteemed contributors. We will do everything possible to bring all these stars full public recognition. Below are just some of the things that we do to accomplish our goals:

    • We educate the public of the great legacy of silent movie stars through this website.
    • We talk to movie industry professionals about silent movie personalities and the importance of their legacy for the history of movie art and art in general.
    • We research film memorabilia stores for silent films that are not available on DVD, for silent film stills and for star photos and portraits.
    • We research domestic and international film archives for silent films that are not available on DVD.
    • We locate silent films that are not available on DVD and make steps to acquire them and make them available to the broad public.
    • If a certain film is located and there is a need to verify the copyright holder(s), we take steps to do that and pay the respective fees.
    • We pay all the fees required by an archive in possession of the copy related to transferring it to a digital form and shipping it to us.
    • We write to the Library of Congress urging them to help repatriate silent films that we have identified in foreign archives. Specifically, the British Film Institute holds the only known copy in the word of the film "Fools of Fashion" (1926), but has refused to make a copy available to Silent Hall of Fame.
    • We write to Warner urging them to release on DVD the silent films that they keep in their vaults for years, without allowing silent movie fans to see them, and to make copies to Silent Hall of Fame. Specifically, Warner keeps copies of the wonderful and critically acclaimed comedy "Rookies" (1927), as well as "Detectives" (1928).
    • We write to AMPAS urging them to help make a deal with Lobster Films and grant to Silent Hall of Fame a copy of the film The Wall Street Whiz (1925), which is now in their possession.
    • We petition the UCLA, urging them to release the public domain silent films that they keep in their vaults for years to Silent Hall of Fame so we can show them to the public.
    • In our search for silent films that are unavailable right now we search advertisements and post advertisements in specialized movie newspapers and magazines, such as "Classic images".
    • We search and establish contact with distinguished silent movie writers and historians, who have contributed to preserving the names of silent movie stars in past decades. We talk to such writers and historians to gain a valuable insight about their interviews with illustrious silent stars, all of which have now passed away, so we are unable to speak with them. One such distinguished person is Richard Lamparski, a renowned writer and radio show host of the 60's and 70's.
    • We search and establish contact with descendants and relatives of silent movie stars for additional insights and information that can help in the fight for their public recognition. Specifically, we have talked to relatives of Marceline Day, Alice Day, Joe Roberts and Helen Holmes.
    • We search and establish contact with Hollywood movie industry insiders to gain knowledge about the inner workings of the various rewards processes.
    • As we grow stronger thanks to your generous financial support, we will start nominating the most noble, illustrious and distinguished stars on our website, one by one, for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
