The Golem – 1915 - posted by Don

Thanks to Marie for the heads up on this blast from the past. Screenplay for Paul Wegener’s lost 1915 German film DER GOLEM of which only about two minutes are known to exist.

The Golem (auf Deutch) – word for word translation transcript by Paul Wegener and Heinrich Galeen – hosted by: Kinematographie – in html format

In this version of the golem legend, the golem, a clay statue brought to life by Rabbi Loew in 16th century Prague to save the Jews from the ongoing brutal persecution by the city’s rulers, is found in the rubble of an old synagogue in the 20th century. Brought to life by an antique dealer, the golem is used as a menial servant. Eventually falling in love with the dealer’s wife, it goes on a murderous rampage when its love for her goes unanswered.
