Reply Hazy, Try Again

Undated photo of actress Pauline Frederick as Potiphar’s wife, courtesy of the Library Of Congress flickr page.

A little internet sleuthing reveals Ms. Frederick starred as Potiphar’s wife in a 1913 stage production titled Joseph and His Brethren.

None of that is all too interesting, but when you find a picture of a woman in an Egyptian setting conjuring the future from a crystal ball stuck to the head of a cobra, well, you just gotta post the thing.

    Great find. Makes me want to re-watch Karloff’s The Mummy.

    That’s a great find. The Egyptology craze brought about some great images.
