The golem 1915


Der Golem (German: Der Golem, shown in the USA, as The Monster of Fate) is a 1915 German silent horror partially lost film, written and directed by Paul Wegener and Henrik Galeen. It is inspired by ancient Jewish legend. It is the first of a trilogy by Wegener, followed by The Golem and the Dancing Girl (1917) and The Golem: How He Came into the World (1920). David Brooks, writing as a columnist for Minnesota Daily, said the film "deals with the tragic issues in life."

In modern times, an antiques dealer (Henrik Galeen) finds a golem (Paul Wegener), a clay statue, brought to life, by a Kabbalist rabbi, using a magical amulet, four centuries earlier. The dealer resurrects the golem, as a servant, but the golem falls in love with Jessica (Lyda Salmonova), the dealer's wife. As she does not return his love, the golem commits a series of murders.

    The Deutsche Kinemathek film archive possesses "108 meter fragments". While many sources consider it a lost film, silentera.com states that a "print exists", and Professor Elizabeth Baer notes in her book The Golem Redux: From Prague to Post-Holocaust Fiction that Donald Glut claimed in The Frankenstein Legend that "European film collector" Paul Sauerlaender tracked down "a complete print" in 1958; Baer is careful, however, to point out that "Glut provides no source for this information."
