The Mummy is a monster movie released in1932. Set in 1921, the film follows Sir Joseph Whemple as he leads an expedition into Egypt. While there, his team discovers both the Mummy Imhotep and a chest containing the scroll of Thoth. Quick film fact… while the scroll is never read out aloud in the film, after the credits they show you the translation- “This is the Scroll of Thoth. Herein are set down the magic words by which Isis raised Osiris from the dead. ‘Oh! Amon-Ra–Oh! God of Gods–Death is but the doorway to new life–We live today–We shall live again–In many forms shall we return–Oh Mighty One.’ While warned by another character, Dr. Muller to re bury the box, an impatient younger archaeologist open’s the box and murmurs the scroll as he translates it.
