Here you can find original photos, advertising, theater programs and other memorabilia from silent films. (We've thrown in a few early sound films also, especially if they feature silent film performers.)

Except where noted, all of our photos were scanned from original, vintage photographs issued by the studios when the film was released during the silent era.  I've also included scans of original advertising flyers, lobby cards, and sheet music.

Find Photographs and images of your favorite silent films and performers

Our film stills, advertising heralds, postcards, lobby cards, and other memorabilia are in an alphabetical list by film title for easy searching. Check our performer list for stills of a particular actor or actress. Our publicity photo area has pictures of actors and actresses that are not tied to a particular film. Also, don't miss browsing the big selection of theater programs.

I have furnished scans of these photos to documentary producers and magazines.  If you need photos for your film or article, I can furnish high-quality scans or photographic copies. Because I want to promote silent film scholarship, your first few photos are free.

Trying to identify a photo from a silent film?

Have a photo from a silent film that you can't identify?  If it has a code in the bottom corner, you might find it on our still codes list.

I also have quite a few photos in my collection that I have not been able to identify.  Click here to see if you can identify these performers and films.
