Sunday Cinema – “Der Golem”

A Jewish tale about a rabbi who creates a clay man and brings him to life in order to protect his people from anti-semites. Centuries later, an antiques dealer finds & ressurects the clay man who falls in love with the man’s daughter. When she doesn’t return his affection, the clay man goes on a rampage.

An interesting film from 1915, the story still holds up and the imagery is still striking in the age of CGI effects.

Someone posted the full (as complete as possible) film online for us to enjoy.
