Eternal punishment for anyone who opens this The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day…

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Got another Karloff shot for you, this time it’s a rather nifty shot of the man sitting in the make-up chair admiring (or lamenting, depending on what mood he was in) his make up for 1932’s THE MUMMY. I’ve always loved Karloff’s make-up here, a more iconic monster I think thank Frankenstein, but the flick isn’t nearly as good as Frankenstein through Son of Frankenstein. There’s just something special about those films that speaks to me more than The Mummy, but that doesn’t hinder my own personal enjoyment whenever I dive back into the world of Im-ho-tep. It’s a hullva picture! Enjoy!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic didn’t kill him! It gave him life! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    More iconic than Frankenstein?

    by Dr Eric Vornoff

    Really? I think you need a new dictionary. You might think it's a better make-up job but Karloff's Frankenstein is the single most recognisable monster in the history of film. And why no mention of Jack Pierce?

    Jack Pierce

    by Dr Eric Vornoff

    In fact, on Jack Pierce's Wiki page the first line reads: 'Jack Pierce... was a Hollywood makeup artist most famous for creating the iconic makeup worn by Boris Karloff in Universal Studios' 1931 adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.' I think there's a mention of The Mummy somewhere in the 20th paragraph.

    Loved the makeup; Wish it had more than 30 seconds screentime.

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    It's true. The script to "The Mummy" was meant to copy most of the key plotline of "Dracula". Don't believe me? What them both again. "The Mummy" is nowhere near as good as "Dracula", the first three "Frankenstien" films or "The Wolf Man" (my personal fav!). Jack Pierce's Mummy makeup was so good, I wish it were given more screen time. It's almost more fun to watch any of the four "Mummy" sequels, none of which are as good in terms of of plot, acting or general filmmaking, but they've all got lots more MUMMY for the money.

    by RosemarysBabyDaddy

    ...then I want a behind the scenes look at Barbara Crampton's teats. THE MUMMY was never one of my favorite Universal horror pics (I enjoyed the Hammer MUMMY more), but anything with Karloff is worth a look.

    The power of Zooey compels you!

    by Rocco Curioso

    She is the tsunami of the new Lois Lane candidates. You can't run; you can't hide. You can only let inevitability wash over you, and cleanse you.<P>Then, you can go about your business, and be happy that the movie will be better *with* her than without her.<P>(Let us bow our heads and pray)

    Lizzy Caplan is Lois Lane!

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

    She's the only modern actress I could buy in that role, and I'd rather have a relative unknown in the role instead of any of the current crop of Hollywood pretty girls.

    My greatest fear...

    by HarryKnowlesNonExistentInceptionReview

    ...that semi-literate Mormon chick will write another Twilight book, this time bringing mummies into the mix and thereby ruining yet another classic monster.

    Zita Johann is Lois Lane...

    by dogu4

    ...or could have been a really good one if they made Superman in 1932 when "the Mummy" was made. I love this film and due to circumstance to complicated to describe here, I've watched it at least 40 times over the last several years, and am always impressed at the strength of the story, cinematography, editing and acting. Zita, who played Ankh-sen Amun, and the love interest for our hero as well as the evil Ardeth Bey, the re-animated ImHotep, (he had done an 'un-holy thing') And she was a real beauty...and quite sexy especially when considering the times when the flick was first made.
