A high priest travels to America with a living mummy to kill those who had desecrated the tomb of an Egyptian princess thirty years earlier.
In a 1995 interview with TV host Skip E. Lowe, actor Turhan Bey (Mehemet Bey) cited this film as his favorite particularly because he loved playing his character.
Now swear by the sacred gods of Egypt, that you will never rest until the last remaining member of the Banning family is destroyed.
Mehemet Bey: I swear!
Near the beginning of the film, Stephen Banning recounts his encounter with the mummy to his family. While Banning is narrating, clips from the previous film, The Mummy's Hand (1940), are shown in the form of flashbacks. Banning is able to recount the final conversation between Professor Andoheb and Dr. Petrie despite the facts that nobody else was in the room with them, Dr. Petrie was killed by the mummy before he could leave the room, and Professor Andoheb was wounded and presumed dead. Even if he was able to piece together what happened to Dr. Petrie based on the evidence, Banning would not have had the perspective to recount the conversation.
