Hello Pulp Friends

Der Golem
Germany, 1920

starring: Paul Wegener, Albert Stert Steinr├╝ck, Lyda Salmonova

In 16th century Prague, a rabbi gives life to a clay creature to save the Hebrews from being exiled from the city. The rabbi looses control of the creature, but a little girl is able to stop him. This third version is the only surviving version of Paul Wagener about the Golem.

All your tributes are fantastic Francesco, but I think the bonus chill here of the mighty Golem is my absolute favourite of the whole series you splaying out.

It's awesome art meeting the best German Expressionist cinema and I bloody love it. :D
