Lights! Camera! Action! Hollywood in those “good old days” was about innovation, experimentation and old-fashioned fun. Ladies of silent film were smearing grease on their faces to look like vamps onscreen! Comedians were throwing pies in each other’s faces to see who got the biggest laugh! Nothing was off limits.

A Year of Silents is a website dedicated to the glamourous women, debonair gentlemen and tragically fallen stars of the early days of Silent Film. With weekly biographies of the biggest stars of the time, as well as the little known actors who deserve to be remembered, we hope to keep their names living on for another 100 years.

This site will be ever evolving with music videos to shake your booty to, fun and fashionable merch to show your love of Hollywood glam and anything else we can think of to get you as excited about Silent Films as we are.
