If you're familiar with the Universal backstory on the Chaney Mummy films, you know that sometimes it was Lon, sometimes it was his stunt double Eddie Parker. It really doesn't matter. Chaney's Mummy films seethe with atmosphere. Some see the first Karloff film as the crown jewel in the series. Others bemoan the fact that these films were SHORT ("Ghost" and "Curse" clocked in at 61 minutes each), as well as the fact that "flashback" sequences from previous films in the series further diluted the "new" content in later entries.
Then there's the fact that if you walked briskly away from Kharis when he was in full attack mode, he could NEVER catch you. He may have been a killer, but he was a slo-mo killer. That didn't stop people from recoiling in horror and basically standing still so Kharis could shuffle up to them and strangle them or whomp them on the head. STILL doesn't matter! If you were a kid and the Saturday night / Saturday afternoon TV "Creature Features" were your sole source of a monster fix, you KNOW Kharis was one BAD Mummy.

MUMMY'S GHOST takes place in poor, little Mapleton Massachusetts. Kharis has been presumably just wandering around the countryside like a dirty hippie since the end of the last mummy movie. When a professor brew up some nice Tana leave tea Kharis comes running (in a manner of speaking) like a hungry hound at chow time, kills the Prof. and guzzles down the tana tea. At the same time, yet another high priest is skulking about trying to get Kharis and Ananka, who is cooling her moldy heels in the local museum, back to Egypt. But you know how it goes with mummies. One thing leads to another and the high priest realizes that Ananka's soul resides in the body (meeOW) of a local girl, Amina Mansouri. He starts out trying to kill Mansouri in order to free Ananka's soul so it can return to her old mummy body (EWW!) but decides to keep her for himself and nuts to Kharis and the laws of Amon-Ra. Well sir, Kharis doesn't much cotton to this idea and he throws the high priest out a window and over a cliff. He then grabs Mansouri and carries her into one of Massachusetts many, many swamps where he and the rapidly aging Mansouri/Ananka sink into quicksand.
