A former law student, Paul Wegener became an actor under the aegis of the legendary impresario Max Reinhardt. After establishing himself in classical stage roles, Wegener entered the German film industry in 1913 as director, adaptor and star of The Student of Prague (1913). His later film efforts in these capacities included The Golem (1914), which he remade in the early 1920s. In 1927, he made his only appearance in an American film (albeit one filmed in France and England), Rex Ingram's The Magician (1927), in which he played a character based on the notorious Aleister Crowley. During the Nazi era, Wegener was appointed "Actor of the State," appearing in propagandistic historical dramas. After the fall of the Third Reich, Paul Wegener managed to remain active in films and on stage until his death at the age of 74.
