The Golem and the Dancing Girl (original German title: Der Golem und die Tänzerin) is a 1917 German silent comedy horror film. It is part of a trilogy, preceded by The Golem (1915) and followed by The Golem: How He Came into the World (1920). Paul Wegener and Rochus Gliese co-directed and acted in the film. Wegener also wrote the screenplay. This was the screen debut of Fritz Feld. It was produced by Deutsche Bioscop GmbH. 
The Golem and the Dancing Girl is now considered a lost film, though silentera.com reports a print may exist in an "eastern European film archive".  Troy Howarth wrote, "(the film) remains one of the earliest filmed examples of a horror spoof....makes it all the more regrettable that it has vanished so completely." 
Not much is known of the plot, since the film is considered lost, but it appears to have been a take-off spoofing the earlier 1915 film Der Golem. Wegener plays an actor who, upon discovering the fear his performance generates when he assumes the role of the Golem in a film, decides to wear the costume to a party he is to attend, in order to make an impression on a dancer (Salmanova) who will be there. 
Troy Howarth wrote, "Not only is the film considered lost, it doesn't seem to have generated much notice upon its original release."

The year 1920 in film involved some significant events.
1917 in film was a particularly fruitful year for the art form, and is often cited as one of the years in the decade which contributed to the medium the most, along with 1913. Secondarily the year saw a limited global embrace of narrative film-making and featured innovative techniques such as continuity cutting. Primarily, the year is an American landmark, as 1917 is the first year where the narrative and visual style is typified as "Classical Hollywood".
The year 1915 in film involved some significant events.

Der Golem is a partially lost 1915 German silent horror film written and directed by Paul Wegener and Henrik Galeen. It was inspired by a Jewish folktale, the most prevalent version of the story involving 16th century Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel who created the Golem to protect his people from antisemites. Wegener claimed the film was based on Gustav Meyrink's 1915 novel The Golem, but, as the movie has little to do with existing Jewish traditions, Troy Howarth states "it is more likely that simply drew upon European folklore".
Rochus Gliese was a German actor, director, production designer, and Academy Award-nominated art director of early films from the 1910s and 1920s. He was born in Berlin.
The Golem: How He Came into the World is a 1920 German silent horror film and a leading example of early German Expressionism. Director Paul Wegener, who co-directed the film with Carl Boese and co-wrote the script with Henrik Galeen based on Gustav Meyrink's 1915 novel, stars as the titular creature, a being in Jewish folklore created from clay. Photographer Karl Freund went on to work on the 1930s classic Universal horror films years later in Hollywood.
