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.

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.
