THE GOLEM ( DER GOLEM)

PAUL WEGENER & CARL BOESE
Germany/1920/Silent
A film version of the old Prague legend.  Rabbi Loew (Albert Steinruck) makes a clay figure of the  
Golem who is to be his servant. But the Golem (Paaul Wegener) will not obey his master and threatens to destroy everything around him. A child in play takes away from  him the  magic formula that gave him life, whereupon the Golem crumbles to dust.
