One of the high-water marks of German Expressionist cinema – the tragic tale of a man made of clay, brought to life to protect the Prague ghetto from enemies high and low. Its success signified global sympathy for the survival of Jewish identity and culture, while also stigmatizing them as alien and archaic. A primary influence on James Whale’s classic Frankenstein and the American horror film.
