Alternate Versions

The DVD and LD feature some deleted scenes:

  • The first deleted scene takes place when the group is riding to Hamunaptra. Johnathan and the Warden argue about his snoring. Then the groups finds a mass of skeletons partially buried in the sand. Ardeth thinks that the skeletons are other treasure-seekers who failed. To one corpse Rick says, "I knew that guy."
  • The next scene shows the ferry just before it leaves Cairo. Beni is seen on board (revealing his participation in the quest earlier than the final film) telling the members of the rival expedition how long it will take to get to Hamunaptra.
  • Finally, there an extended version of the scene where Rick and Jonathan find the Book of Gold. More of Imhotep's followers burst through the floor and attack, throwing them away before trying to open the Statue of Horus, presumably to steal the book. But this statue has also been booby trapped and salt acid melts the mummies. This scene explains why holes suddenly appear in the floor in the theatrical cut.
