The Mummy

Question: Evie constantly refers to the 'Bembrige Scholars' - do they actually exist?

Kara

Chosen answer: No, but it sounds a bit like Cambridge or some other old institution. Bembridge actually exists as a village in England, but there is no mention anywhere of any institution or society named "Bembridge Scholars", so it's most likely something that was invented for the sake of the franchise, as they are mentioned in the second movie as well.

Question: After "sucking" Henderson, he's almost fully regenerated. Why does his mouth become decayed again when he kisses Evie?

Answer: You answered it, he was almost fully regenerated, just some minor skin aliments.

Question: What's the significance of the tattoo on the hands of the medjai? Not the medjai symbol but the 3 lines?

Answer: The tattoos they have are various symbols that mark them as Medjai. The sequel, "The Mummy Returns" confirms this.

TedStixon

Yes, I know, but the tattoos on the top of the hands are different from the one on the forehead and the cheeks. It makes me think of pyramids.

I believe it's just that seal of the Medjai. I don't think there's much significance beyond that.

The Mummy mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the library, when Evie is putting back the books. She leans over to put the book back, but it falls to the ground and she is balancing on the ladder. When the camera cuts back to show the whole ladder, the book is nowhere to be found on the floor. (00:13:00)

Evelyn: You know, nasty little fellows such as yourself always get their comeuppance.
Beni: They do?

More quotes from The Mummy

Trivia: The warning that is on the chest containing the Canopic jars ('Death shall come on swift wings to whomsoever opens this chest') is a variation of the curse that was allegedly written on the walls of Tutankhamen's tomb: 'Death shall come on swift wings to him that toucheth the Pharaoh's tomb'.
