This paper describes the plot, the camerawork, the cinematography and the performances in "The Mummy", a movie about the discovery by British archaeologists of the mummy Imhotep. The paper explains why the movie is, on the whole, a great visual experience for anyone who wants to see and learn how a director managed to successfully work with limited technology.

From the Paper:

""The Mummy" (1932) marked the directorial debut of Karl Freund who was a well-known cinematographer of the silent era. He had worked on some prominent German movies including such classics as "The Last Laugh" (1924), "Metropolis" (1927), and "Variety" (1925). In the US, he worked as cinematographer for movies that include "Camille" (1936), "Murders in the Rue Morgue" (1932), and Tod Browning's "Dracula" (1931). "The Mummy" was his most successful film as a director though he later went on to direct seven other films in the United States."
