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 and Nefrekeptah prepare to play a game of checkers with immense consequences.
Then, we go behind the camera and behind the scenes one last time and talk about the man who created The Mummy - literally - the man who gave us the signature looks of the Frankenstein monster, the Wolf Man, and our boy Imhotep, Jack Pierce.
Then, finally, we take a look a minutes 41 through 48 of the movie, when Ardeth Bey makes moves on a chess board of his own, and begins his seduction of Helen Grosvenor, whom he believes to be the reincarnation of Princess Ank-Sen-Amon.
