The mummy came to life in the 1940s out of Universal Pictures' need to produce quick turnaround, low budget B movies. Universal produced The Mummy's Hand, The Mummy's Tomb, The Mummy's Ghost, and The Mummy's Curse (originally The Mummy's Return) and thus created a popular franchise that is still supported today by a following of loyal fans. (Universal was prompted to produce a remake of its Mummy films in 1999.) This book is devoted entirely to Universal's Mummy movies of the 1940s. It reveals lost action and dialogue by analyzing scenes that were edited out days before The Mummy's Hand was released to theaters, treats readers to other dialogue that was filmed and then cut down to almost nothing before being included in the films, and compares and contrasts the original story of The Mummy's Return to the final shooting script of what was later renamed The Mummy's Curse. Each of the films has its own chapter, and chapters are also devoted to the actors who played the heroes, heroines, high priests, victims, and mummies in the films, and to the filmmakers who brought the mummies to life.

In April 1981 a team of archaeologists and scientists started work on a rare event - the unwrapping of an Egyptian mummy. This was the main stage of a project that had started with the examination by X-ray of all the mummies in the collection of the Bristol Museums and Art Gallery, inspired by the late Dr. Joe Sluglett OBE. The focus of the Project was the mummy of a man identified from inscriptions on his coffin as Horemkenesi. Because the bandages were crumbling away, he was unwrapped in order to gain as much knowledge as possible. It was a case of 'investigate or incinerate'.
