Ancient, exotic, and unstoppable – Universal’s Mummy was brought terrifyingly to life by Boris Karloff in the 1932 horror classic directed by Karl Freund. The Mummy was their brand new monster after the success of Dracula and Frankenstein the previous year, and would prove to be one of their most enduring.
Although it was eight years before a sequel was produced, once The Mummy’s Hand had been released in 1940, with Tom Tyler stepping into the bandages, it could only be a matter of time before the studio’s franchise bandwagon pulled the character on board and handed the reins to its new master character creator, Lon Chaney Jr.
Our luxury franchise guide begins with a chapter devoted to The Mummy (1932) and covers each instalment in the series in turn, with many rare stills, posters, behind the scenes information, facts and trivia. No stone is left unturned in exploring the whole Mummy series, including The Mummy’s Hand (1940), The Mummy’s Tomb (1942), The Mummy’s Ghost (1944), The Mummy’s Curse (1944) and Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955).
Painstakingly researched, and lovingly written by authors Nige Burton and Jamie Jones, The Universal Mummy Movies 1932-1955 also looks in depth at the many people behind the series, from cast and crew to studio executives and the creative brains at the beating heart of the Mummy story.
