The Egyptian Mummy

(Vitagraph Company of America, 1914)

Dick wants to marry Florence, but is too poor to win her father’s consent. Her father is an antiquarian searching for the elixir of life and needs an ancient Egyptian mummy to experiment on, for which he is willing to pay thousands. With his fortune in mind, Dick bribes a filthy old bum with liquor to lie still in a sarcophagus. The plan works perfectly, until the bum starts drying out and getting antsy.
