Joel Day as "The Mummy"!
6 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

The emaciated guy playing the "mummy" is in fact very creepy looking! The actor is Joel Day and he is the real star of the film. Constance Talmadge is not on screen all that much. Billy Quirk is top billed but he is essentially the straight man here. The film is absolutely stolen by Day as the tramp turned mummy. It's very funny and well worth a look if you aren't expecting a Karloff-type mummy or wanting to see prime Constance Talmadge. There is even a horror genre plot element. The doctor, played by director Lee Beggs, is trying raise the dead and he thinks he has discovered "the elixir of life". I was laughing out loud as the nutty professor (or whatever he is supposed to be) believed he was being attacked by a real live and vicious mummy! The whole thing is ultra dumb and silly, but I was surprisingly entertained by this wild film. Joel Day is listed here in only a handful of films, but one of his other credits, Universal's MAN OF SHAME (1915), has him playing Death. Judging from his looks here, I'll bet he was effective as Mr. D. THE Egyptian MUMMY (1914) can be found on the NICKELODIA Volume 1 DVD from Unknown Video.
