There have been countless films made which center around the fabled mummies of ancient Egypt, but none have been more true to life than 1959's The Mummy. The story begins when three British archeologists discover the grave of a 400 year old Egyptian female priest. The British archeologists quickly realize they've stumbled onto a looker, with her rank smell, wrinkled parchment-like skin, and bad teeth. Deciding to put their discovery to full use, the trio decides to share her. The wackiness starts when Peter Cushing's character Banning, decides to take her to a high society banquet. In scenes later to be stolen by Weekend at Bernie's, we thrill to the excitment of Banning making with the funny. In one genius scene, Banning uses a napkin holder and a cigar to fool party-goers that the Egyptian priestess is having an orgasm. When Banning's new date becomes the talk of the town, the other two archeologists get jealous and plot their revenge by calling upon the power of the Mummy. Using secret freemason incantations, they bring the Mummy, portrayed effortlessly by Christopher Lee, to life. Unbeknownst to the two archeologists, Banning has already entered into contract with the Mummy, giving him exclusive rights to all things Mummy. In the end, they all realize the error in their ways and get down to some hard-core necrophilia. This moral tale of greed and jealousy was the first back door pilot in British history, turing into the short lived sit-com Die Mummy Fucker.
