The Golem and the Dancing Girl (original German title: Der Golem und die Tänzerin) is a 1917 film parody. 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.

The Golem and the Dancing Girl is now considered a lost film, though reports a print may exist in an "eastern European film archive".[1]

IMDb credits Wegener as playing the Golem (as he did in the other two films in the trilogy), while states this role was played by Gliese.
