The most famous cinematic adaptation of the golem narrative is Paul Wegener’s silent film classic The Golem: How He Came into the World from 1920. The powerful, clumsy, robot-like golem with the distinctive hairstyle played by Paul Wegener himself has influenced representations in art and film right up to the present day. In addition, the film is also an early milestone of the horror genre.
