    Description

    The Mummy's Ghost (Universal, 1944). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This was the fourth film in the Mummy series from Universal Studios. After the success of the original The Mummy in 1932, and highly profitable runs of other sequels to horror features, Universal embarked on a new Mummy series in 1940 with Tom Tyler taking over the role Boris Karloff made famous. In 1942, Tyler was out as Universal wanted to promote their new horror star, Lon Chaney Jr., and cast him as the Mummy Kharis in the final three films. In this sequel, the Mummy is in Massachusetts being revived through the use of Tanna leaves. John Carradine, as the evil Yousef Bey, is sent on a mission to retrieve Kharis and the Princess Ananka and return them to Egypt. Bey soon discovers that Ananka, whose mummified body is on display in a museum, has been reincarnated and he now wants to kidnap the reincarnated princess for his own desires. This poster features a wonderful image of Chaney as the Mummy with a great title treatment overlaying an Egyptian sarcophagus. The poster to this sequel in the series is quite scarce. This is the first time Heritage has offered this elusive one sheet and it's very clean condition makes a most noteworthy collectible. The poster has one pinhole in each corner and some very minor color touch up to the fold lines. Very Fine+ on Linen.
