Comments:

This first sequel to The Mummy is nowhere near the quality of the first Dracula and Frankenstein sequels, but I still liked it. Dick Foran plays a famous archaeologist down on his luck, and Wallace Ford (of Freaks fame) plays his comic-relief sidekick. They manage to stumble on a broken vase which shows them the way to the tomb of the princess Ananka. Egyptians led by a High Priest (Ciannelli) try to stop them along the way. Cecil Kellaway is The Great Solvani, the man who finances the expedition, and Peggy Moran plays his daughter Marta. They come along, determined to see that their money is being well spent. Of course the Mummy is awakened and hijinks ensue. This one is worth a rental, but the only way I'd buy it is with The Mummy Legacy Collection.
