Brave Warrior 1952 Subtitles

THE GOLEM. Suffering under the tyrannical rule of Rudolf II in the 16th-century Prague, a talmudic rabbi creates a giant warrior to protect the safety of his people. Sculpted of clay and animated by the mysterious secrets of the Cabala, the Golem is a seemingly indestructible juggernaut, performing acts of great heroism, yet equally capable of dreadful violence. 1920.

SIEGFRIED. Based on the epic poem Die Nibelungenlied. Young and brave Siegfried leaves his forest dwelling to seek the kingdom of King Gunther. En Route he encounters a fire breathing giant dragon and successfully conquers it. A bird informs Siegfried that bathing in the dragon's blood will make him invincible, however, while gleefully obliging, a small leaf lands on Sigfried's shoulder and creates a vulnerable spot where the blood did not touch him. After battling the Dwarf king of the Nibelungen, Siegfried reaches Gunther's court and falls in love with the King's sister Kriemhild. Gunther will only allow the two to marry if Siegfried helps him win the hand of Brunhilde, the warrior queen of Iceland. Using his magic powers and a cloak of invisibility won in the battle with the dwarf king, Siegfried tricks Brunhilde into yielding to Gunther. When Brunhilde learns of the subterfuge she angrily puts the wheels in motion to further a plot to kill Siegfried, who she secretly loves. Filled with monumental smokey forest vistas, stunning images, and magical creatures, Lang's mystical depiction of ancient Norse lands crafts a compelling tale of desire, destruction and revenge. 1924.
