Welcome to Monsters by the Minute!
For this, the first season of the show, we are taking a look at Universal Pictures 1932 classic, The Mummy, directed by Karl Freund and starring Boris Karloff, Zita Johann and David Manners.
In this episode, Setna, who now possesses the Book of Thoth has met someone. A beautiful someone.
For this episode, we begin by looking at the life of the actor who plays the love interest for Helen Grosvenor, Frank Whemple. His name was David Manners, and he was a beloved leading man in the 1930’s, with striking eyes and a strong, gentle face, but as we shall see, has depth and layers behind that handsome face. Then, finally, we take a look a minutes 48 through 56 of the movie. Helen, disobeying Mueller's warning has fallen under the spell of Ardeth Bey and has joined him in his hidden resting place.
