* BilinguialBonus: Not the the hebrew in the film is very accurate, but it is surprisingly lotyal to the kabbalic roots of the tale. The word "Aemaet" - אמת, which is used to give the Golem life means "Truth". Once the first letter is erased, it creates a new word, "Met" - מת, which means "dead".
** Also, the word "Golem" itself means ''cocoon'' or ''pupa'' in Hebrew. In both contexts, the word represents an unknown potential of life.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: It's not too daring to assume the Golem mirrors the Jews' status as outsiders and their quest for societal acceptance.

'''''Der Golem, wie er in die Welt kam''''' (''The Golem, How He Came Into The World'') is a 1920 [[GermanExpressionism German]] silent horror film, co-written, co-directed, and starring Creator/PaulWegener, about the origins of the [[{{Golem}} Golem of Prague]]. It is one of the earliest and most influential Expressionist films and is considered a masterpiece of the German silent cinema. Wegener had produced two earlier films using the character, ''Der Golem'' (1915), a mostly lost film telling a somewhat similar story, and ''Der Golem und die Tänzerin'' (''The Golem and the Dancing Girl'') (1917), in which an actor (clearly Wegener playing an {{Expy}} of himself) puts on the make-up of his monster role as a prank on a dancing-girl whom he is interested in.

* OrIsIt: The magical star that awakens the Golem (and, if the book text is to be believed, can be used to reanimate the dead) was last seen in the hands of a little girl, who may still have it after the end of the story.
