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.

   Please use this button for a one-time donation. Use the button on the right-hand side for a recurring donation.

    Help needed to translate Dutch, German and Russian titles into English

    We request the help of bilingual users. We have in our possession rare films made in the USA that have been preserved in foreign archives and do not have English titles. If you are fluent in any of the above languages and in English and would like to make a contribution to Silent Hall of Fame, please contact us.


    Please Help Us Find These Films

    These are all films that we haven't been able to track down, but they have user ratings in IMDB and/or are known to have been in distribution, so the assumption is that they exist somewhere in private collections.  If you have a video file or a DVD, or a VHS, or 8/16/28/35 mm with any of these films, please share it with us so that we can show the film to the silent movie lovers of the world.  You will make a valuable contribution to Silent Hall of Fame and will help one of our silent movie stars receive belated recognition and glory.  We will give you a credit for your contribution by stating your name for all to see, with special thanks.  In addition, if you send us an original copy of the film as a donation, you may be able to reduce your taxes on your next year's tax return.

    It is worth noting here that only because a particular film has user ratings in IMDB that doesn't mean that it exists, or that it has been seen in the last few decades.  Such is the case with The Big City (1928) and  London After Midnight (1927), both starring Lon Chaney and Marceline Day.  The last known copies of both films were lost in a MGM fire in 1967.  However, it is possible that these two and many other films may still be found in private collections.

    It is also possible to find rare films locally. Please visit your neighborhood video store that offers classic and silent films, take the List of Rare Films with you and check if they have any of them available.  If you are able to locate any of these rare movies you will make a valuable contribution to Silent Hall of Fame and help your favorite silent movie star receive better recognition.  We will give you a special thanks and post your name for all to see and admire.


    Here are a two examples of why we believe that many of these films can be located:

    1/ a 16 mm or 8 mm film of The Way of the Strong (1928) was available in the 1970ies and 1980ies from a company called Kit Parker Films. So for a period of time it was in circulation and people did buy it.  This is why we believe that with the help of our users we can find this film.

    2/ 16 mm or 8 mm films of The Wife's Relations (1928) and The New Teacher (1922) were available in the 1970ies and 1980ies from a company called Mogull's Films. We hope that someone will share these films with us.

    Of course, you can also contribute any other silent films featuring our stars, which we currently don't stream and are not listed on this page. We would also welcome films featuring other silent personalities, especially those movies that have survived only in private collections and have been unavailable to the public.  As far as the films that we stream are concerned, if you have  film copies with better quality than the ones that we have on the site, please share them with us.

    We will be adding many more currently unavailable and rare films, so please check back often.  You can download a printable file with these movies by clicking on this List of Rare Films

    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.
