The Mummy's Hand

The Husband chose this and we watched it Saturday afternoon. He picked it up on dvd recently. I hadn't seen it before. The Mummy's Hand re-tells the story of the mummy, played in the original by Boris Karloff. George Zucco stars as the high priest who pulls the mummy's strings. It's much more like an Abbott and Costello movie than it is like the original Mummy movie, except it's not nearly as funny as Abbott and Costello. I watched the whole thing but nothing could convince me ever to do that again.

youtube has it in 7 parts that should autoplay:

Moria calls it "modestly effective". 1000 Misspent Hours says,
What prevents it from rising above the level of its dottering, flabby cousin from the 30’s is a combination of its dumbed-down script and that deadliest bane of the pre-60’s B-movie-- comic relief!
Weird Wild Realm actually liked it. The audience rating at Rotten Tomatoes is 56%.
