very enjoyable
24 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this sequel to the mummy(1932), may have been more of an inspiration for the Stephen Sommers remake in 1999, than the original one, just because of its different style. In the mummy's hand, suspense takes a backseat to action and comedy in this higher paced universal classic. Well cast and decently written, this film is recommended for all fans of this genre of film. If you're not a classic film fan, then just go for the original Mummy with Boris Karloff. Dick Foran and Wallace Ford bounce lines off of each other with great chemistry as the two American adventures stuck in Cairo, until they hatch a get-rich-quick scheme by uncovering an Egyptian princess' tomb. Peggy Moran is cute as the romantic interest of Dick Foran, Cecil Kellaway plays his part well as the jovial magician who backs the Americans venture, and George Zucco is pleasantly evil as the Egyptian priest who schemes to bring Kharis back to life. Also notable in this film is Harry Stubbs as the hapless bartender, Charles Trowbridge as the scientist friend of Dick Foran, and Leon Belasco as Ali the digging foreman. highly enjoyable 10/10
