Description by Wikipedia

The Golem: How He Came into the World (original German title: Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam) is a 1920 silent horror film co-directed by and starring Paul Wegener. The picture was directed by Carl Boese and Wegener, written by Wegener and Henrik Galeen, and stars Wegener as the golem. The script was adapted from the 1915 novel The Golem by Gustav Meyrink. The film was the third of three films that Wegener made featuring the golem, the other two being The Golem (1915) and the short comedy The Golem and the Dancing Girl (1917), in which Wegener dons the Golem make-up in order to frighten a young lady he is infatuated with.[citation needed] It is a prequel to The Golem and is the best known of the series, largely because it is the only one of the three films that has not been lost.[citation needed] One of the early horror films, the film was sensational upon its release and has left a lasting legacy within the movie industry, alongside another early German expressionist horror film, The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, also released in 1920.[citation needed]
