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.

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,
Everybody's Sweetheart (1920) featuring our star Olive Thomas,
War and the Woman (1917) featuring our star Florence La Badie,
The Lady of the Photograph (1917) featuring our star Shirley Mason,
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.
