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.

This movie is part of our series "Other Favorite Films". This category includes films that do not feature a particular star from our site, but which in our view represent a major contribution of a silent movie to the Arts and Culture of the world.


    "Just Suppose" is a drama and romance starring Richard Barthelmess and Lois Moran. A distant heir to a European monarchy, who is free to marry at will, falls in love with an American girl. Then he suddenly becomes first in line for the throne and must marry a woman from royal circles.
    On January 18, 1926 The New York Times published a review of the film by its movie columnist Mordaunt Hall, who was notoriously short of praise in his articles. Here is what he wrote:
    "A wholesome, sympathetic and often amusing picture has been fashioned from A. B. Thomas's play, "Just Suppose". The story is admirably suited to Mr. Barthelmess's youth, ability and good looks. It is through a golf ball striking Linda Lee Stafford that he meets the girl who captures his young heart. She is portrayed by little Lois Moran, the young actress, who won film fame through her brilliant performance in "Stella Dallas." And it might just as well be said here and now that her acting in "Just Suppose" is worthy of the highest praise. She is restrained and yet she reflects joy and sadness as naturally as if the affaire de coeur were one in which she, herself, was vitally interested. Her prolonged conversation with the Prince is a most appealing sequence, in which Mr. Barthelmess rises to the occasion."
