Episode 203: Mummy Dearest (feat. Verbal Diorama!) | The Mummy (1999), Egyptology & Cinema History The Midnight Myth Podcast

    • Film History

Death is only the beginning…

Dear listeners, we have a treat for you today! An epic centuries in the making - we’re thrilled to join forces once again with an adventurer, scholar, podcaster extraordinaire: Em from Verbal Diorama! Even better, we’re teaming up to cover the 1999 action adventure blockbuster The Mummy. One part ancient love story, one part classic monster flick, one part Indiana Jones-style adventure, The Mummy walks genre lines with elegance and humor to create one-of-a-kind cinematic experience. We’ll dive into the history and legacy of the film with Em (wait till you hear who was supposed to direct this one!), learn about the Imperial ironies that dictate historical study of Ancient Egypt with Derek, and explore surprising literary connections to another classic monster with Laurel.

You can check out more of the history and legacy of movies you know (and movies you don’t!) at Verbal Diorama, available wherever you get your podcasts!
