She's in luck -- I think Anubis figures heavily in the new "The Mummy Returns" -- out this May.

I'd also recommend a children book favorite (never filmed as far as I know) -- one of the Alfred Hitchcock Three Investigators series
"The Mystery of the Whispering Mummy" -- it's what started my lifelong interest in things Egyptian. I definitely recall an Anubis-headed figure or two in the book and on the cover.

(You can also make you friend jealous by telling her I recently saw the Boris Karloff "Mummy" and  the non-Karloff follow-up "The Mummy's Hand" at the Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Blvd. :->)

She since became an Egyptology major and is currently working in the Egyptian exhibit at the Buffalo museum.  She has been dying to know, and the IMDB gives no help...

Once I thought it would be a good idea to regulate things myself, and run the world as it ought to be run; but I gave it up long ago.  The world's a stage, they say; but the show ain't always amusing, by a long chalk, and sometimes I wish I didn't have a reserved seat."--John Merrick, _Aunt Jane's Nieces_, by L. Frank Baum
