The First Scene from the 1932 version of the Mummy.
About this creation
Dr. Muller: Norton! Sir Joseph! Look- the scar from the embalber's knife is not there!
Sir Joseph: I guessed as much, Muller.
Norton: Buried alive!
Norton: "Imhotep, High Priest of the Temple of the Sun at Karnack". And the sacred spells are chisled off! Now, you poor fellow, what could you have done to deserve this?
Dr. Muller: Blasphemy, perhaps.
Norton: Feels like some metal.
Sir Joseph: It's gold.
Dr. Muller: What does it...
Sir Joseph: It's a curse. "Death...eternal punishment... for... anyone... who... opens... this... casket. In the name... of Amon-Ra... the king of the gods." Good heavens, what a terrible curse!
Norton: Well, let's see what's inside!
Sir Joseph: Wait-don't go!
Doctor Muller: Put it back. Bury it where you found it. You have read the curse. You dare defy it?
Sir Joseph Whemple: In the interest of science, even if I believed in the curse, I'd go on with my work for the museum. Come back with me, and we'll examine this great find together.
Doctor Muller: I cannot condone an act of sacrilege with my presence.
Norton: *Translating* "O Amun-Ra, O God of Gods-Death is but the Doorway to new Life-We live today-we shall live again-in many forms we shall return- O Mighty One"
Sir Joseph: Norton! Snap out of it, man!
Norton: He went for a little walk! You should have seen his face!
Quoting Field Marshal Cliffe (The Third Horseman)
Norton is my Grandpa's last name, lol. Nice scene, looks very intersting, but I don't see how anyone could be mummified alive unless they were buried in Natron.
Accually, it happened a lot in ancient Egypt. I suppose you would be either sealed in with some kind of pitch or just the sarcophagus
lid would be too heavy to lift.
Norton? Really? Is it Ralph Norton?
