It's Really Funny!
20 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man playing a mummy in a cheesy movie has to leave the set because his wife is about to give birth. In his panic, he doesn't take the time to remove the bandages that are his make-up (actually, the director doesn't want him to take the time because he would have to be re-bandaged when he returns to the set). So off he goes. Now there are a series of pratfalls involving a bunch of hillbillies that think he is the representation of a legend who set out to lynch him, an old blind man who actually has a mummy in a sarcophagus, and the "real" mummy himself. The hillbillies are excellent. A recurring bit is when a prissy matronly woman (probably a school teacher) tries to talk the guys out of what they are doing. They listen intently and then go ahead with their evil scams. Another highlight is when they discuss how to kill a mummy and keep getting it mixed up with Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, and the werewolf. The final scene in the episode is priceless with one of the greatest exit lines ever.
