    Description

    The Mummy's Tomb (Universal, 1942). Midget Window Card (8" X 14"). Although the Boris Karloff vehicle "The Mummy," released in 1931, wasn't the first film to feature the Egyptian undead - that honor most likely belongs to "The Mummy," a 1911 film in which a female mummy comes back to life to find love in modern times - it did, certainly, ignite a franchise that ran for many years. This was the second sequel to the Karloff original, following "The Mummy's Hand" in 1940, and starred Lon Chaney Jr under the bandages as Kharis, the sacred mummy. This card, sporting art which is very similar to that of the one sheet, shows some slight discoloration to the top right where some writing has either been bleached or removed, as well as a light corner bend in the top left. Aside from this extremely minor flaws, however, this card is in excellent condition and will be a proud addition to any collection. From the Collection of Denver Sherry. Very Fine/Near Mint.
