"Ghost of the Canyon" is a short action film, featuring Helen Gibson, a star of Silent Hall of Fame. Scenario and direction are by Robert Myles, story by R.A.Dillion, photographed by Carl Widen.

In 1915-1917 Helen Gibson starred a serial by the name of "The Hazards of Helen".  She is considered the first professional stunt woman.

Two railroad companies compete for a very lucrative contract. Helen's father is the first in command, and her fiance the second in one of the companies. The rival company organizes a sabotage, which is exposed by Helen. Unfortunately for her, she is alone against three men who tie her up to the railroad tracks. She faces imminent death unless she finds a way to free herself from the ropes.

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.
