Then a few years earlier, Weimar era cinema also includes Der Golem (1915), The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), and later with influences from Louise Brooks lensed through the influential La Invencion De Morel (1940) by Adolfo Caesares.

One of the additional early contemporaneous cultural influences to these that I can think of is the 1917 version of Cleopatra.
