Episode from the early 1950's television series "Captain Video and His Video Rangers". Captain Video was actually the very first of the American television sci-fi shows, of which many were to follow. The link to ancient Egypt in this particular episode is a very thin one, though, as only a reference to Egyptian hieroglyphs is made and nothing of Egypt or ancient Egypt is shown.
