period: The Mummy

The Mummy

In 1921 an archaeological expedition in Egypt discovers the mummy of the ancient Egyptian prince Im-Ho-Tep, who was condemned and buried alive for sacrilege. They also discover the Scroll of Thoth, which can bring the dead back to life, and – of course – one of has to read it out loud.

Zita Johann played Helen Grosvenor who, of course, turned out to the spitting image of Im-Ho-Tep’s love – Ankh-es-en-amon.
