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.
