The Mummy-Mummy (1932)
King of the Dead
1 Hour and 13 Minutes (73 Minutes)
It comes to life!
Classic 1932 movie that has been adapted countless times successfully and other other unsuccessfully. The film begins with the theme music from "Swan Lake". Relies much on atmosphere created. The lighting, the concentration on the look of Boris Karloff and the imposing appearance give the film something spooky and scary. The makeup of the mummy is incredible, if you compare it with the time and resources they had.
Used several layers of cotton to create the rytidiasmeno effects of the Mummy. The result was the Karloff cannot even speak.
Evolve quickly since it lasts 1 hour and 10 minutes. And I think that is enough. Not into unnecessary details and does not have scenes which are simply there to fill up the movie. The rest of the cast of actors is excellent and we find again the Edward Van Sloan as Doctor Muler and David Manners as Frank Whemple, the archaeologist who awakens the Mummy. We had seen them as Van Helsing and Harker John in the movie Dracula 1931.
