The Royal Mummy


Directed by Gail Willumsen

Produced by Jill Shinefield & Gail Willumsen

Released by PBS Distribution | Gemini Productions

It is a tantalizing idea and an outrageous long-shot: a shriveled mummy with crossed arms that has lain neglected on a dusty museum shelf at Niagara Falls could be the remains of a long-lost Egyptian king. While a trail of clues hints at how the looted mummy made its way to North America, archeologists, scientists, and even an orthodontist look to the latest genetic testing and imaging techniques in hopes of ascertaining the body's hidden identity. "The Mummy Who Would Be King" reveals an astounding story filled with historical intrigue and the wonders of forensic science.

Co-composed with Andrew Gross.
