You know, after The Mummy came out, we docents at the museum were getting a lot of inquiries about the Book of the Dead. The movie made it seem as though only one had ever been written, so people were actually asking us, "Do you have the Book of the Dead here?" That went on for a long time. LOL It's frightening that grownups would believe this sort of thing.

That question is rare nowadays. However, people still sometimes ask if we have the beetles that crawl inside you and eat you from the inside-out. I'm happy to say it's young kids who usually ask this, after having seen the film on DVD, but still...

Movies are fun. I have both The Mummy and The Mummy Returns on DVD, and they are highly entertaining. It strikes me, though, how people actually take this stuff for fact. Shocked


I know, when I first watched this (I was pretty young) I was led to believe that there were scarab beetles that could eat you alive, that (from the Mummy Returns) people in Ancient Egypt wore clothing like when Ancksunamun and Evy were fighting - past life, when really the Ancient Egyptians were dressed brilliantly and that they were really speaking Ancient Egyptian. And all along it was made up words. Amazing how two movies can lead you to believe things, especially at a young age Rolling Eyes Very Happy
