German artist Paul Wegener was well-known for his work as a writer, director, and actor. Wegener, well-known for his innovative work in German expressionist film, had a big influence on the development of the motion picture industry in its early years.


Paul Wegener who was born on December 11, 1874. He made the crucial choice to abandon his legal studies and pursue a profession in acting when he was twenty years old. Before joining Max Reinhardt’s acting ensemble in 1906, he began his career as a touring artist in the provinces. Wegener’s captivating stage persona and acting talent attracted notice right on, paving the way for a remarkable career.

He made the switch to the rapidly developing field of motion pictures in 1912. His movie career began with his debut in the 1913 adaptation of “The Student of Prague”. But it was while filming this movie that he became acquainted with the ancient Jewish tale of the golem. Drawn in by the story, Wegener co-wrote and co-directed the film adaptation with Henrik Galeen. Wegener’s first rendition of “The Golem” (1915) was a big hit and helped to solidify his name in the cinema business.

In 1917, Wegener parodied the Golem story again with “Der Golem und die Tänzerin.” But Wegener’s retelling of the event in “The Golem: How He Came into the World” (1920) cemented his place in film history and turned the film into a German movie classic.

Wegener experimented with a variety of characters, including those of yogi and youthful inventors in “Der Yoghi” (1916), demonstrating his fascination with trick photography, the paranormal, and Eastern mysticism. Wegener starred in Rex Ingram’s “The Magician” in 1926, which was his first Hollywood picture. He went on to play important parts in movies like “Alraune” (1928) and “The Strange Case of Captain Ramper” (1927).

Wegener ventured into sound cinema in 1932 with Richard Oswald’s “Unheimliche Geschichten,” a black comedy/horror film that humorously referenced expressionist cinema. As the Nazis rose to power in 1933, theatre companies disbanded, but Wegener, unusual for a prominent artist, became an actor of the state. He appeared in Nazi propaganda films such as “Mein Leben für Irland” (1941) and “Kolberg” (1944–45). Following the war, despite ill health, Wegener played the title role in a 1945 production of Lessing’s “Nathan the Wise.”
