An Egyptian high priest travels to America to reclaim the bodies of ancient Egyptian princess Ananka and her living guardian mummy Kharis. Learning that Ananka's spirit has been reincarnated into another body, he kidnaps a young woman of Egyptian descent with a mysterious resemblance to the princess. However, the high priest's greedy desires cause him to loose control of the mummy.Written by

The Mummy's Ghost is the third of four movies in the original "The Mummy" franchise.
It follows on from the previous film and yet another high priest has risen our mummy (Played again by Lon Chaney Jr). Once again he is after the reincarnation of his original love. Trouble is this is the third time we've seen the same plot.
I'm not saying The Mummy's Ghost is any worse than the rest, it's just the same thing.
What it does have however is a very shocking and surprising finale that I found very entertaining. Movies from this time tended to be very predictable so this came as a surprise.
For fans this will entertain, but it could easily have been a stand alone movie.
Well enough made
Some very hammy acting
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Fainting was a big thing for women in the 1940's
Mummy tantrums are hilarious
Ancient egyptian bandages were bullet proof
