This 1964 Hammer horror film seems to have been much-maligned over the years by some fans and critics but I don't know why because it is actually quite a good little film. Okay, so it's not as good as Hammer's 1959 film version of The Mummy and it does not have Peter Cushing or Christopher Lee in it or any other big-name actors but I still think that it is quite enjoyable and stylishly-done.
Fred Clark is great as the Barnum-type promoter, Alexander King. At one point when the police are questioning him about the strange goings on and they ask him if he has any enemies, he replies, "Of course I've got enemies, I'm in show business!" There's also an unusual twist when one of the main characters is not who he initially appears to be.
If you love Hammer films or 1960s British horror movies in general then "The Curse Of The Mummy's Tomb" is certainly worth a look.
The cast isn't exactly glittering even by Hammer standards: female lead Jeanne Roland is probably best remembered, if at all, as James Bond's Japanese masseuse in You Only Live Twice, former 50s TV Sherlock Holmes Ronald (son of Leslie) Howard is a veritable Mr Excitement as her dutifully dull fiancé, George Pastell the obligatory educated Egyptian voice of doom vainly warning the profaners against taking the treasures out of the country, with only Fred Clark giving it much energy as the Barnumesque showman determined to turn a fast quarter of a million bucks by exhibiting the contents of the tomb with hourly unveilings of the Mummy himself ("He's worth 10 cents of anybody's money!Read more ›
If like me you are a fan of the now veteran Hammer films and other British horror movies of the 1950s-1970s then The Curse Of The Mummy's Tomb is worth adding to your collection.
Back in the 1980s I replaced most of my collection of 8mm movies with VHS and I have been going through a same process of upgrading to DVD for the last two or three years. This has given me the excuse to revisit many films that I have not watched for some time and to sample new films of the genre which have appeared over the past 20 years.
This 1964 Hammer horror offering is actually not as bad as many critic have painted it, although it is nowhere near as good as the 1959 The Mummy, starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing; in fact apart from the Hammer regulars Michael Ripper and Harold Goodwin in cameo roles, the cast was mostly newcomers to the Hammer stables although the film was both written and directed by Michael Carreras. The cast was led by Terrence Morgan, Ronald Howard, the son of Michael Howard, and showcased Jeanne Roland who never really made an impact on the big screen but became a regular in British television dramas. The real star of the show was the American actor Fred Clark playing the brash financier and promoter whose exploitation of the unearthed mummy leads to the usual murderous rampages. Clark also gets all the best lines of a less than usual standard Carreras script.
There are some stylish set pieces, and it does feel like a parody at times, especially when impossibly suave playboy Adam Beauchamp adjusts his bow tie, after depatching a would be assailant over the side of a ship. Theres also a terrific performance from Fred Clark as American showman Alexander King, who plans to take the Mummy on a world tour. However, Ronald Howard is wooden as a forest of trees as male lead John Bray, and Jeanne Roland fares little better as Annette Dubois.
Anyway, an entertaining enough film, but don't expect the lavish spectacle that its predecessor 'The Mummy' provided. A solid enough 3 out of 5
