Trivia

With The Mummy's Hand (1940) taking place in 1940, this film should therefore be set in 1970, as frequent mention is made of thirty years having passed. However, there is no attempt to create a futuristic setting and the film includes contemporary mentions of the ongoing Second World War. See more »

Goofs

When a torch is thrust into the mummy's face, it is clearly a rubber mask on a dummy. See more »

Channey Jr.'s first appearance as the gauzed menace!
6 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Fun, typical Universal"B".. In what must've amounted to a cost-cutting measure, over 10 min. of the film's 60 min. running time, is made up of scenes from 1940's The Mummy's Hand"!! This flick would mark Chaney's first of 3 appearances as Kharis. Look for Glenn Strange[Frankenstein's Monster from '44-'48]in an unbilled "bit" as a farmer calming a horse, during the Mummy's first attack sequence.
