Gary Lucas Plays "The Golem" (1920) -- Gary Lucas accompanies the film live with his original solo guitar score

Director: Paul Wegener and Carl Boese.
I have performed with this classic horror/fantasy film--the best version of the Golem legend ever made--in our 20 countries round the world since debuting my live score (in collaboration with composer Walter Horn) at the Museum of th Moving Image in Astoria NY in 1989. The film concerns the actual historical Rabbi Jehudah Loew, who Jewish legend has it fashioned a man out of clay and brought him to life through cabbalistic magic to protect the Jewish Community of 16th century Prague from annihilation. A stunningly beautiful, little seen film!

Silent about Legendary Czech Creature and Rabbi LOW Shows at Pordenone with original music

user
The film [programme note by Kristin Thompson] Der Golem is a classic film – doubly so. First, it has long nestled comfortably within the list of titles that make up the German Expressionist movement of the 1920s. Teachers of survey history courses are more likely to show Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari, but a serious enthusiast will make a point of seeing Der Golem as well. From the start, reviewers recognized Der Golem as Expressionist. In 1921 the New York Times’ critic wrote, “Resembl...
