Pogany Meets The Mummy

September 28, 2010

William (Willy) Pogany is one of my favorite classic illustrators. Imagine my surprise as I was digging through an old issue of Famous Monsters magazine (Vol.4 1959) and found this photo of him.

He’s standing in front of the great Boris Karloff dressed as the character of Imhotep in the 1932 film “The Mummy.” Pogany worked on only a few Hollywood films during his career. In this one he was uncredited.

As an added bonus, he also appears briefly in this documentary on the film (at 07:56) in another still picture production shot. This looks like it might have been a DVD extras sequence.
