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.

"Male and Female" 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 Arts and Culture.   

"Male and Female" is a tale of drama, adventure and love triangles. An English butler, who serves a noble family with humility, becomes the boss due to his life skills when all are stranded on a desert island. Later when a rescue vessel shows up he knows that his leadership must come to an end.
