The third version (the first with sound) of the legendary tale of the Golem was shot with a French cast in Prague, where the myth is said to have been born. Rudolf II, played by Baur, has become a vicious and oppressive dictator who practices the black arts and treats ghetto Jews poorly.

However, he lives in constant fear of the Golem, a giant that protects the Jews. Rabbi Jacob (Dorat) finds the Golem and enscribes God's name on its forehead, bringing the statue (played by Hart) to life. The creature goes on a vengeful rampage, dispatching Baur's armies. In the end, the Golem has

destroyed most of Prague, including Baur's palace. Since the Golem has completed his work, Dorat removes God's name from the giant's forehead and the statue shatters. Effectively directed, with some amazing special effects, though the narrative drags somewhat in spots. (In French; English

subtitles.)
