    The Mummy's Ghost (Universal, 1944). Half Sheet (22" X 28"). The third entry in Universal's popular Mummy series, this classic chiller finds Kharis (Lon Chaney Jr.), along with Yousef Bey (John Carradine), searching for his beloved Ananka, whose body had crumbled to dust but whose soul has been reincarnated in the person of Amina Mansouri (Ramsay Ames), a young Egyptian exchange student studying Egyptology with Professor Norman (Frank Reicher). The movie also features George Zucco as the High Priest and Robert Lowery, several years before he would don the cowl of the Caped Crusader in Columbia's Batman and Robin (1949), as leading man Tom Hervey. This stunning half sheet, with its bright, near-flourescent colors, has never been folded, but has benefited from pressing and cleaning. It had a long cut in the lower right, a tear and small hole in the lower left, small edge tears in the top border, and a small hole in the upper left corner, but professional restoration has admirably addressed all of these issues, returning this wonderful poster to its original glory. As with all Universal horror paper, material from this highly desirable title is extremely hard to come by; don't miss this chance to add this rare beauty to your collection! Rolled, Very Fine-.
