The clip archaeologists try to clarify what happened Part 2 from The Mummy (1932) with David Manners, Zita Johann
I'd have liked Egypt better if I'd met you there.
No such luck! Stuck in the desert for two months, and was it hot!
Surely you read about the princess?
So you did that?
The 14 steps down and the unbroken seals were thrilling.
But when we came to handle all her clothes, her jewels and her toilet things...
They buried everything with them they used in life.
When we came to unwrap the girl...
How could you do that?
Had to! Science, you know!
Well, after we'd worked among her things, I felt as if I'd known her.
But when we got the wrappings off, and I saw her face...
You'll think me silly, but I sort of fell in love with her.
Do you have to open graves to find girls to fall in love with?
I say. Now I know what it is about you.
There was something about her head...
I had never mentioned the name, yet I heard Miss Grosvenor
mutter in ancient Egyptian something about Imhotep.
What was this Ardath doing in the museum?
Looking at the mummy. Just at closing time.
il est mort?
Tout de suite, effendi.
Come. A museum guard found dead in the room with the princess.
