The Spiders: Chapter 1 (Die Spinnen, 1. Teil - Der Goldene See) (1919)

Spiders Spiders Spiders
In this early Fritz Lang German silent picture, Kay Hoog is a millionaire adventure from San Francisco who parachutes from a hot air balloon onto an isolated island off South America that's inhabited by the secret descendents of the Incas. He hikes through a marsh until he gets to a staircase that leads down to the water where Noela, Princess of the Incas, is descending to bathe in the holy sea. She sees a huge Burmese Python crawls down the stairs. As she faints, Kay grabs the snake by the neck and throws it off the steps out of our view, then he shoots it two times. That's all you needed to do to get the girl back in those days.
They used a real Burmese Python, which was probably very exotic and maybe even terrifying to movie goers way back in 1919.
