The Golem

1920

The Golem: How He Came Into the World (original German title: Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam) is a 1920 silent horror film by Paul Wegener. It was directed by Carl Boese and Wegener, written by Wegener and Henrik Galeen, and starred Wegener as the golem. The film was the third of three films that Wegener made featuring the golem, the other two being The Golem (1915) and the short comedy The Golem and the Dancing Girl (1917), in which Wegener dons the Golem make-up in order to frighten a young lady he is infatuated with. It is a prequel to The Golem and is today the most widely known of the series.

This is a classic silent movie and a must-see for any serious student of film (or casual, for that matter). A rabbi in the oppressed Jewish community uses black magic to create a strong-man creature to defend his people. Romance, jealousy and betrayal also play a part in this movie

A German Expressionist masterpiece.
