| Kinda lame compared to the "Dracula" making of featurette....
I have so far only seen a couple of the making of featurettes that were made for inclusion in the Universal Classic Monster Collection and the Monster Legacy Collection and the first, about the film "Dracula" was perfection in every way. In contrast, while this featurette on "The Mummy" is enjoyable, it's also a bit lame due to the host as well as some lame jokes he tries (in vain) to make which make the film seem a bit lame at times. Fortunately, there is enough behind the scenes info about the film that it IS worth seeing...particularly if you adore the classic Universal monsters. In addition to Belmer (who was a disappointment), special effects master Rick Baker and several others appear in the documentary to explain the story of this 1932 classic.
