IMDb profile

The Mummy's Hand (1940) is a Universal Pictures horror film released in 1940. The black-and-white film is a sequel to the 1932 film The Mummy although none of the characters from the first film are in the second. Some critics consider the movie more of a reworking than a sequel of the 1932 film for a younger audience. Ford as Det. ... Universal Studios Theme Parks. ...

More comic than the first Mummy, the Mummy's Hand tells the story of a down-on-his-luck archaeologist and his friend that are attempting to leave Cairo and return to New York. While at a street market, the archaeologist buys an old broken vase that may hold the mystery of the location of the ancient Egyptian princess Ananka's tomb. After receiving funding from an eccentric magician (Cecil Kellaway) and his daughter (Peggy Moran), they set out into the desert only to abandoned by their workers once a tomb is found. To make matters worse, the group is terrorized by a sinister high priest (George Zucco) and the living mummy Kharis (Tom Tyler) who are the guardians of Ananka's tomb.


Trivia

  • The Mummy's eyes were "blacked out" after the film was made to make it appear that he didn't have eyes.
  • During a flashback sequence, many scenes from the 1932's The Mummy were used to tell the new story, which closely resembles the back story used in the first film. In fact, some shots even show Boris Karloff in some scenes, even though Karloff was not credited.
