Silent Hall of Fame is the only place where we actively work to bring back from oblivion the names and legacy of formerly illustrious silent movie stars, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the world but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
We also fight for your right, the right of the public, to see silent masterpieces that have been kept in hidden vaults for far too long. Our website streams for free one such masterpiece that has not been seen in 85 years and is not available anywhere else.
Please visit our website to watch quality silent films absolutely free and to support the legacy of silent movie stars with your tax deductible contribution.
Please spread the word about Silent Hall of Fame and help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.
