    Description

    The Golem (Paramount, 1920). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Actor-director Paul Wegener made three films built around the Golem, the mythical creature of Jewish legend, This film, released asThe Golem in the U.S.in 1920,still exists and is regarded as one of the landmarks of early German Expressionism. The central figure, a monstrous clay figure, is played by the director of the film, Wegener. Paper for the original U.S. release is very scarce on this title, only a handful of lobby cards have ever turned up. Offered here is an amazing closeup scene card which shows the Golem guarding the unconscious Miriam (Lyda Salmonova), the rabbi's daughter, with whom he has fallen in love. There are bends in two of the corners with tiny chips missing. The card has pinholes in the corners, some light edge wear and faint smudging on the borders. Don't miss this rare opportunity to acquire an original lobby card from this landmark film. Fine+.
