This third episode of King Tut: The Face of Tutankhamun considers the ancient curse of King Tut, a curse that allegedly took the lives of many involved in the excavation of the tomb. Also investigated is the phenomena of "Tut-Mania," the obsession of many with Tut and ancient Egyptian culture, an obsession that seems healthy today. This video examines the mania's effects on art, fashion, architecture, and cinema.
