The Mummy

Continuity mistake: When the two men talk in the tent at the beginning, watch when one turns around - there is a clear cut in mid action where the men's positions change without any movement. (00:13:05)

Other mistake: In the opening credits, The Pharaoh (James Crane) is misspelled as "The Pharoh."

Trivia: Boris Karloff's make-up was designed so he would look like Ramses III. It required eight hours to put on the make-up.

Helen Grosvenor: Do you have to open graves to find ghosts to fall in love with?

Doctor Muller: Burn the scroll, man. Burn it! It was through you this horror came into existence.

Frank Whemple: You seem to think this thing has all the devils of hell in it. Why not burn it and be done with it?
Doctor Muller: An excellent sugggestion.
