Poster of the Week – June 28 2017

The Poster of the Week is The Mummy from 1959. Though the title suggests Universal Pictures‘ 1932 film of the same name, the film actually derives its plot and characters entirely from two 1940’s Universal films, The Mummy’s Hand and The Mummy’s Tomb, with the climax borrowed directly from The Mummy’s Ghost. The character name Joseph Whemple, the use of a sacred scroll, and a few minor plot elements are the only connections with the 1932 version.
