The Golem

"The Golem" was the first monster movie. Shot in Germany in 1920, this silent masterpiece is based upon a medieval Jewish legend about a clay figure that is brought to life to serve as a protector of the Jews who live in the Prague ghetto in the year 1580. "The Golem" is a film of great power, as hypnotic as a German Expressionist vision of life as a waking dream. The dim light and looming shadow were photographed by Karl Freund, who also shot two German Expressionist masterpieces: Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" and F.W. Murnau's "The Last Laugh." The story itself heavily influenced Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein."
