NA Parry –
Even a film not hugely regarded like ‘The Mummy’s Tomb’ gets lavish and impressive treatment in this beautiful Ultimate Guide. Personally, I love Universal’s Mummy films, but am not blind to their occasionally lacklustre plot elements.
Informative and interesting text married with extraordinarily crisp photographs and layout, poor old Lon Chaney Jr’s least favourite role is given sterling treatment here. Here’s to future editions featuring ‘Curse’ and ‘Ghost!’
