The Mummy Movie Summary

On an expedition to Egypt in 1921, archeologist Sir Joseph Whemple finds a 3700 year-old mummy named Imhotep. His colleague, Dr. Muller, examines the Egyptian priest, and discovers that the mummy’s viscera is still present. He concludes the mummy was alive when entombed!

The Scroll of Thoth, a parchment with an incantation capable of bringing the dead back to life, is found in a wooden box with Imhotep. Dr. Muller pleads with Whemple to burn the scroll before anyone dies from its curse. Unfortunately, Whemple ’s young and eager pupil, Ralph Norton, opens the scroll and begins to translate it; releasing the Mummy from death’s grip. Imhotep takes the scroll and leaves the tomb with it. Ralph goes made with laughter from the experience. His insanity will eventually drive him to kill himself.
