"Twelfth Night" (1910) starring Florence Turner

"Twelfth Night", produced by Vitagraph and directed by Charles Kent, is a short film based on the comedy of Shakespeare, featuring Florence Turner, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.  

Viola (Florence Turner) is saved after a shipwreck and ends up dressed in man's clothes in the domains of a certain duke.  Viola becomes his servant and one day is asked to take a letter to duke's love interest Olivia.  The latter, seeing a boy bring the message, suddenly falls in love with Viola.

Viola seems in trouble and doesn't know how to dissipate the tension in the air, but gets help from an unexpected source.  All of a sudden her twin brother, thought lost at sea, shows up.  All identities are revealed, all misunderstandings sorted out and everybody finds someone to love.

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.

Silent Hall of Fame has started an online campaign to begin raising funds for the nomination of our first star for the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All contributions are tax deductible. Here is the web page:
