Dick Foran and Wallace Ford reprise their roles from The Mummy's Hand, making them the only actors in the series (outside of Lon Chaney Jr. as Kharis) to play the protagonists in more than one movie. See more »
When a torch is thrust into the mummy's face, it is clearly a rubber mask on a dummy. See more »

The Mummy's Tomb is the 2nd part of the original "The Mummy" franchise following on from The Mummy's Hand (1940).
It's set 30 years after the events of the first film and the mummy has returned under new guidance, this time to kill off all surviving members of the Banning family who were responsible for foiling the evil plans in the first movie.
This time there is no comedy, the entire tone of the movie is considerably darker!
For this reason it doesn't have the same charm as the first movie but it makes up for this with better cinematography and continues the story perfectly.
It does suffer all the tropes of movies of this era (And there are many) but it could have been considerably worse. For fans of classic horror cinema this is a watchable continuation of the franchise.
Looks better than the first part
Follows on very well
Remaking scenes from the earlier film is a tad silly
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Mummys are excellent climbers
If in doubt, cry witch!
Playing dead works against Mummys
