THE MUMMY
Director - Terence Fisher, Screenplay - Jimmy Sangster, Producer - Michael Carreras and Anthony Michels Keys, Photography - Jack Asher, Music - Franz Reizenstein, Special Effects - Bill Warrington , Makeup - Roy Ashton, Art Direction - Bernard Robinson. Production Company - Hammer. 1959.

Cast: Peter Cushing (John Banning), Christopher Lee (Kharis/The Mummy), Yvonne Furneaux (Isobel/Ananka), Felix Aylmer (Stephen Banning), Eddie Byrne (Mulrooney), Raymond Huntley (Joseph Whemple), George Pastell (Mehemet Bey), Harold Goodwin (Pat), Michael Ripper (Poacher), George Woodbridge (Police Constable)

      John Banner, the leader of an expedition to Egypt, has broken his leg, so he leaves it to his father Stephen to unearth Queen Ananka's tomb and artifacts, in spite of warnings that to do so means death. However, by reading aloud the words on an ancient scroll he has come across, Banning's father has unwittingly revived Ananka's protector, the high-priest Kharis, who was buried alive with his beloved Queen 4,000 years earlier for attempting to bring her back to life using the very same scroll. Driven to insanity by the sight of the Mummy, Banning senior is left a quivering wreck, leaving it to a modern day high priest, Mehemet, to steal the scroll and vow to destroy the desecrators. Thus the scene is set for the Mummy to be secretly transported to England by Mehemet in order to murder all those connected with the expedition.
      A series of set pieces follow in which the Mummy carries out his murderous tasks, which includes breaking into the mental home where Stephen Banning has now been placed. Naturally, when Banning tries to alert the doctors that a mauranding mummy is on its way to kill him, they pay him no heed, leaving the path clear for Kharis to smash his way into Banning's room and strangle him.
      There is a flashback sequence, which shows how Kharis came to be buried alive with his Queen, after having his tongue cut out during an elaborate ceremony. The Mummy then attacks John Banning in the quiet of his library, smashing through his French windows. Banning fights his apparently indestructible intruder with all manners of weapons, including a shotgun and a spear he plunges srtaight through it's body, only to have the Mummy stopped by a call from his wife Isobel, who just happens to look like Queen Ananka. When Mehemet commands Kharis to kill her, The Mummy rebels and breaks the high priest's back. With Isobel now in his arms, Kharis heads back to the quagmire to find eternal peace with his beloved queen, only to have her rescued at the last possible moment, leaving Kharis alone to sink into the murky depths, taking the life-giving scroll with him. (Thanks to Howard Maxford's "Hammer, House of Horror" for help in describing the plot for "The Mummy").
