The Golem: How He Came into the World (1920)


Having viewed this video, leant me by Mescaline Franklin, twice now, I remain impressed by the sympathetic view of the medieval plight of the European Jewish community and the negative depiction of the princely Euro-Christian state.

I particularly like the opening scene of the old Rabbi in his astronomical observatory and the physical set of the walled medieval ghetto as a semi-autonomous enclave. From a horror perspective, it is apparent that the makers of the various Frankenstein movies took costuming cues from this production.
