Format: DVD
This Universal DVD release of the original Mummy franchise,part of its' "Legacy Collection" and like the other entries in the series,is a must own for all true horror fans.
The first thing you notice about the original 1932 "The Mummy" is the atmosphere.Universal was the best,bar none, at creating gorgeous and elaborately dark and moody sets that appropriately generated just the right atmosphere.In this case it is ancient Egypt and in and around the pyramids.Why you can almost feel the dust and sand.
Boris Karloff plays the title role to a tee in the original 1932 picture ,fresh from his breakthrough role in "Frankenstein".He is Karis a high priest whose love Princess Ananka dies.He is so overcome with grief that he tries to bring her to life but is caught doing so.He is sentenced to death and is wrapped and buried alive.
About 2,500 years later in 1932 the tomb of Ananka is discovered by archeologists and is removed to a museum.Karis comes alive at this disturbance and becomes determined to re-awaken his love from her sleep.Her spirit flees into the body of a local woman.He tries to befriend the museum staff but things get just too frustrating and he takes matters into his own hands.He captures the woman in whose body the princess' spirit resides but she is confused and is having nothing to do with it all.She calls on Osiris to help her and the Egyptian Goddess strikes Karis down.
The franchise continues with The Mummy's Hand(1940).This time a Dr.Banning(recently from the Scripps Musueum) with his friend Babe are trying to find some kind of archeological find in Egypt that will restore the museums'faith in him.They find a piece of pottery which leads them to discover the tomb of Priness Ananka.

After Frankenstein made him a star, the studio looked for another vehicle for Boris Karloff, and The Mummy was it. The first Mummy film (1932) has the magnetic Karloff, who doesn't actually spend much time in the severe Mummy bandage makeup, but somehow sort of regenerates into almost human form, probably for the sake of his own comfort after what he went through on Frankenstein. He's still a magnificent villain and an excellent actor, opposite a striking female lead in a film with good production values that puts the cartoonish remake decades later to shame.
The sequel films (four more flims in the series) don't have Karloff, and I found them average at best, with irritating comic relief sidekicks, perky dogs that lead the hero to the Mummy, no real explanation for how the Mummy survives destruction each time, and recycled plots. I suppose they're interesting to watch once, to see how the series degraded.
Worth buying, however, for the original film and extras, a decent documentary (though much of the information is related second hand, by film historians), and the trailers and commentary.

This is a great collection of the Mummy films including the original movie with Boris Karloff and fantastic make-up by Jack Pearce (a master). Also included are the 4 sequels wich turn out to be pretty good little thrillers with Lon Chaney Jr. as the Mummy with the same great make-up by Jack Pearce. It comes in an handsome packaging on 2 discs.My only drawback is that the top left corner of the box was crushed enough that i could not fix it. Please Amazon try to be more careful with the product shipping and handling. Getting damaged goods is a real drag for collectors.

Loved it, movies are short (1hr 10 min average length). Can be watch as a mini-series. Movies plots follow the preceding one. If you are a fan of these types of movies, it is a must-buy. Already have wolfman and invisible man movies, planning on getting Dracula, Frankenstein and creature from lagoon sets.
