3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag of Mummies! January 3, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
THE MUMMY (1932) - 5 STARS

Boris Karloff is magnificent as the living mummy Im-ho-tep, who angered the gods by reading the scroll of Thoth, which would raise the dead body of his beloved Princess Anckesen-Amon. When Im-ho-tep's tomb is discovered over 3,700 years later and one of the archeologists reads the scroll of Thoth, Im-ho-tep is brought back to life. He later removes his mummy wrappings and assumes the identity of Ardath Bey. Ardath meets and falls in love with a reincarnated version of Princess Anckesen-Amon. In the end, the Princess calls upon the goddess Isis, who zaps Ardath Bey/Im-ho-tep back into a skeleton. This movie has withstood the test of time to become a classic.

THE MUMMY'S HAND (1940) - 1 STAR

In this sequel, continuity is sacrificed at the expense of the contrived plot. The living mummy, played by Tom Tyler, is renamed Kharis. He remains in his mummy wrappings and slowly shuffles along for the duration of the movie. The scroll of Thoth is discarded, as the means for reviving the mummy involve boiling tana leaves and drinking their juice. Finally, the Princess is referred to as Princess Ananka. The archaeologist Steve Banning (Dick Foran), his buddy Babe Jenson (Wallace Ford) and a magician named the Great Solvani (Cecil Kellaway) are played strictly for laughs. At the end, Kharis is supposedly destroyed by being set on fire.

THE MUMMY'S TOMB (1942) - 4 STARS

Lon Chaney, Jr. assumes the role of Kharis in this movie, and is a vast improvement over Tom Tyler. A high priest brings Kharis to America to kill those responsible for desecrating the tomb and digging up Princess Ananka. Kharis is brought to Mapleton, Massachusetts, where Steve Banning lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Review is Written with Love ... March 29, 2005
Format:DVD
Universal Studios offers excellent dollar value with this collection. The films have all been re-mastered. The original trailers are included, and there's a short feature about the creation of the original film. With the exception of the transfer of the original film itself their work is stellar. (Actually it's stunning. The print of the original film probably just wasn't in good shape to begin with). The trailers are enjoyable but likely won't be watched more than a few times. The documentary on the creation of the film is (for me anyway) one of the most enjoyable in their entire series. The stories about Zita Johann and her clashes with (Director) Karl Freund are too funny for words to describe.

The sequels are more fun to pass a bit of time with than the original was though. They're light and not particularly demanding, and they're filled with enough laughs (intentional and otherwise) to make any hour a pleasant one. Archival bits weren't matched well with the rest of the footage but apart from that the films are superbly crafted. Yes, the dialogue and the acting are poor but the photography, sets and makeup are excellent. Much of the lighting was done brilliantly. This combination of good with bad gives them a sort of charm that hasn't quit. At least, it hasn't quit yet.

The Mummy ****

Karloff's portrayal of Ardath Bey (Im-ho-tep) remains one of the best of its kind. His method of communicating intent by not doing things was ahead of its time. Zita Johann was an excellent foil for him. Her combination of demure femininity and exotic (but eccentric) sexuality make her one of the most memorable of all of Universal Studio's horror film heroines.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mummy Lives On June 12, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set of films is a real treat for horror fans and exactly what popcorn was made for. It includes the original screen classic from 1932 that began our long love affair with the mysteries of archaeology and ancient Egyptian curses which have provided us with countless hours of entertainment over the years as we let our imaginations run free for an hour or two. This is top-notch fun from Universal.

After the initial masterpiece of the original "A" film, "The Mummy," Universal would make a franchise of the character and it would become a staple during the 1940's for people looking to escape the harsh news of the war and get lost in a fun story on a Saturday afternoon. It was also a chance to put your arm around your girl, as you knew there would be a few thrills that would give you the excuse you needed.

Films like "The Mummy's Hand" and "The Mummy's Tomb" while no more than mere entertainment helped keep the legend fresh in the minds of those hungering for more. The two later entries from the 1940's included here are both a lot of fun, and both have Lon Chaney Jr. as the tortured Kharis, forever attempting to reunite with his forbidden love, Ananka.

"The Mummy's Ghost" was excellent "B" film entertainment and had John Carradine as Yousef Bay. George Zucco was back as Andoheb, even though he was supposedly killed off in the previous film. Ramsay Ames is the frightened Amina/Ananka in this one and Robert Lowery is her bewildered boyfriend. Chaney elicits sympathy through the bandages somehow as he chases after the screaming Amina, who begins to transform into his love Ananka as the story progresses. The great "B" sets of Universal and the transformation of Ramsay Ames' character Amina into Ananka are highlights of a good entry in the series.
