Keaton, Chaplin and Lloyd are among the most popular filmmakers of the silent film era. A number of their comedies were filmed in Glendale. Paul Ayers’ presentation tells the story of silent movie making in the Glendale area and showcases the fascinating detective work and research that were employed to identify locations.

Paul Ayers is a collaborator on a series of books written by John Bengston (Silent Echoes, Silent Traces and Silent Visions) identifying the current locations of sites used in the making of silent movies. Past books focused on films made by Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Harold Lloyd.
