Lois Lane and an explorer set out on an expedition through an underground cavern and discover a race of hawk-men. When these creatures prepare a ritual sacrifice for the adventurous pair, Superman comes to the rescue.
After famed Egyptologist Dr. Jordan is found dead at the foot of King Tut's sarcophagus with a syringe by his side, his assistant Jane Hogan is charged with poisoning him and eventually convicted of murder. At the Daily Planet Clark Kent receives a call from Dr. Wilson of the Egyptian Museum who tells him of the mummy's curse. An examination of the sarcophagus quickly reveals how Dr. Jordan was killed but when King Tut reanimates his personal guards, it will take all of Superman's strength to take the day. Written by
In the final scene, Clark Kent is clearly voiced by Sam Parker (who was the voice of Lemuel Gulliver in the Fleischer brothers' feature-length Gulliver's Travels). It is not clear why Clark Kent's usual voice, Bud Collyer, did not perform this segment. See more »

A woman is convicted of murdering a scientist in Egypt but Clark is called over to go over some clues, which might point the finger at a mummy. Lois tags along and gets herself kidnapped, which means Superman must do some fighting. There aren't actually any mummies in this thing but that's not what makes it so boring. What kills this film is that it runs under eight-minutes and the action doesn't start until close to the six and a half minute mark. We get a lot of dialogue telling us what the doctor was doing in Egypt yet we get very little action and Superman doesn't even appear until the very end and it's only for a matter of seconds. The animation looks very good but the budget was apparently too tight for a good script.
