Boris Karloff rose from the grave when Universal Pictures decided to add a new monster to their repertoire in 1932. Where they had drawn on legend and literature for such past hits as Dracula and Frankenstein, however, they invented their own horror mythology with The Mummy (1932), introducing to the screen the idea of "the dead who walk. The story follows a team of British archaeologists led by Sir Joseph Whemple (Arthur Byron) who discovers the mummified remains of the ancient Egyptian prince Imhotep (Boris Karloff), along with the legendary scroll of Thoth. When one of the archaeologists recites the scroll aloud, Imhotep returns to life and escapes. Several years later, Imhotep has taken on the guise of a wealthy man and searches Egypt for his lost love that he believes has been reincarnated as the lovely Helen Grosvenor (Zita Johann).
