"In the Jewish ghetto in 16th century Prague, the community leader and astrologer Rabbi Löw (Steinrück) foresees doom for his people. Soon after, the Emperor Luhois (Gebühr) issues an expulsion order to the people of the ghetto to leave the city. In an attempt to save his people, Löw creates a forbidding clay golem (Wegener) that he brings to life with the assistance of a demon spirit and an amulet placed in the creature's chest. Initially the Golem does nothing but good (including saving the Emperor's life) but after Löw's assistant tries to use it for his own purpose and subsequently attempts to remove the amulet, the enraged creature embarks on a trail of destruction which threatens the whole community ... An excellent example of German Expressionism"--Container

Grün ist die Heide by Hans Deppe( Visual )

3 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is one of the most typical examples of the genre known as "Heimatfilme" (homeland films), and immensely popular in its day. It is characterized by an intense nostalgia and an almost complete denial of the realities of life after the war, although it is mentioned that some of the main characters are refugees from eastern German lands (as were a significant portion of the film's appreciative audience) and there is some joking about servants who don't stay in their place! The plot is a collation of almost all the cliches of the genre, from the comic romances to the villainous thief who must be brought to justice by the hero (in such stories, for some reason, it is almost always a poacher captured by a forester). The setting is a sunny countryside where a couple of lovable vagabonds provide musical interludes, singing the title song "Grun ist die Heide" while strumming the musical instruments that they carry around from village to village, sleeping in the fields like true sons of nature (no mention of what they do in the wintertime). In short, this movie is extremely interesting as a glimpse of the mentality of its times."--IMDb
