In Universal's previous mummy films, the mummy was called "Kharis". In this film, the name of the mummy has been changed from "Kharis" to "Klaris." See more »
When Abbott and Costello are eating the hamburgers and trying to distract each other by pointing out beautiful women in order to slip the other the cursed medallion, they call each other by their real names, not their characters' names. See more »
This was the boys last picture for Universal. Actually it is better than some of the prior ones.
It has a better supporting cast than some with Marie Windsor & Richard Deacon. It has a better drawn story line than others too, as the script almost gets the idea right.
For the first time in many pictures, it has some of Abbott & Costellos better comic dialog which had been missing for several films. It includes the crisp "take your pick" routine and it is a breath of fresh air for the first time in a while.
There is a clever sequence where A & C pull a clever escape using some stunts that are cleverly done. There is a little music but it is not as obtrusive as some previous films. Overall, this is just slightly below their best films, much better than their worst ones.
