Not a bad movie for a rainy Saturday afternoon. It’s a little serious and a little bit fun. Keep an open mind and realize this isn’t a million dollar production and it can be very enjoyable.
Review By: Ack

Ultimately, this spawned three sequels that develop the tales of “Kharis” (this time Tom Tyler) as he is raised from his perpetual living death to reconcile with his “Princess Ananka”. By far the best of them, this film starts off with Dick Foran (“Steve Banning) and Wallace Ford (“Babe Johnson”) as two hapless archaeologists who accidentally discover and defile the tomb of “Kharis” who, together with his menacing, megalomanic High Priest “Andoheb” (George Zucco) are not best pleased. Revived by his potent elixir of Tan leaves, the mummy sets off to wreak vengeance on his desecrators – and, of course, to find his long lost gal whom he hopes will buy into his new “been in a terrible fire/hospital” look. The production is a bit basic – there is plenty of repetitive use of the same shots but the cast/writing in this are quite decent – Cecil Kellaway and Eduardo Cianelli are quite effective at keeping the story moving along between strangulations and it’s got quite a good conclusion too. No relation to Karloff’s 1932 version, but still quite an enjoyable development go the them that I rather enjoyed.

The Mummy’s Hand
Anhotep(George Zucco)is commissioned by the dying High Priest of Karnak(Eduardo Ciannelli) to protect the secret tomb of Ananka from “unbelievers” who’d dare defile/desecrate her tomb, removing it’s treasures. Anhotep is given instructions by the High Priest to use Kharis(Tom Tyler), an undead Egyptian imprisoned in bandages(..through amazing embalming methods)for breaking the sacred rules of the gods for attempting to resurrect Ananka with Tana leaves, to kill anyone(..such as members of expeditions) which dare to seek out her tomb or disturb it. But, Anhotep must, each night during the cycle of the full moon, dissolve three Tana leaves which will keep Kharis’ heart beating. When others threaten to desecrate the tomb of Ananka, Anhotep will dissolve nine Tana leaves to give Kharis life and movement. The “Tana soup” motivates Kharis to kill anyone near the vial containing what will indeed provide him life. Two down-on-their-luck archaeologists, Steve Banning(Dock Foran) & clownish Babe Jensen(Wallace Ford, the film’s comedy relief, providing belly laughs with his silly antics)are in Cairo when they come across a vase from a beggar in the bazaar which contains hieroglyphics which might provide the way to Ananka’s tomb. When Banning questions an archaeological colleague, Dr. Petrie(Charles Trowbridge)about it’s potential, he questions the Professor of Cairo Museum, who just so happens to be Anhotep! Moving forward despite Anhotep’s various methods to trump any kind of expedition, Banning and Babe find a monetary suitor in “The Great Solvani”, Tim Sullivan(Cecil Kellaway, who is a hoot pulling all kinds of magic tricks, providing the audience with yet another source for comedy, often on Babe)who buys into their pitch for profit if Ananka’s tomb is discovered. But, he has a daughter, Marta(the spunky and lovely Peggy Moran)who is visited by Anhotep telling her of swindlers who might rob her pops blind using him for a fake expedition. Anhotep also harbors a lustful attraction for her. At first resistant of Banning and Babe, she soon discovers their legitimacy as they pursue the tomb. Instead of finding Ananka’s tomb, however, they make a far more dangerous discovery..the burial chamber of Kharis. As the Egyptian workers who assisted them on the expedition flee for the hills, Anhotep will have a street spy(Sig Arno)infiltrate Banning’s camp placing the vials of Tana soup in tents so that Kharis will kill those who draw near. Will Banning and company survive or will Anhotep succeed in his task to annihilate anyone who dares threaten Ananka’s tomb?

This was a good little surprise. Tyler’s affective mummy, Kharis(..a replacement for Inhotep from the first film)is quite creepy thanks to the superb work of Jack Pierce, regarding the bandages which have become “living tissue” forming his “new face”. Those black eyes sure work to provide extra chills. Great cast, top to bottom. The comedy actually doesn’t detract, but enhances the character’s likability. Foran is a dashing, charming lead with Zucco a terrific villainous rival, with hate running through his veins for those who’d dare disturb the tombs of his people. Also affective is Ciannelli as the High Priest who as all the best lines(“You hear? Children of the night. They howl above the Hill of the Seven Jackals when Kharis must be fed.”)who provides motivation for his apprentice, Anhotep. Magnificent sets(..I read that the temple scenes were appropriated from the film “The Green Hell”)also enhance the overall film. In my humble opinion, this is one of the finest Universal franchise sequels ever made. Every aspect of the production is top notch. There’s a terrific inserted scene of a howling jackal right before Kharis strikes for the first time. Like in future sequels, Kharis has a limp and lame arm which can be used at times to lift..but most of the time, Kharis strangles his victims with his one good arm. The other sequels sadly are rather repetitious and uninspired. While Tyler cuts a formidable Kharis, Lon Chaney’s later incarnation is disappointing.
