Description by OLDIES.com:
The Mummy's Hand (1940; 70 minutes):
In this acclaimed follow-up to the popular original, an expedition of American archaeologists, headed by Steve Banning (Dick Foran) and Baby Jenson (Wallace Ford), travels to Egypt in search of the undiscovered tomb of the Princess Ananka. There they soon discover the clues that lead them to a 3000-year-old mummy, who is guarded by a sinister high priest (Eduardo Ciannelli). Reluctantly funded by a magician (Cecil Kellaway) and his beautiful daughter (Peggy Mason), the expedition has its hands full battling the mummy, who goes on a killing rampage during each full moon, in this frightening chiller masterpiece.
The Mummy's Tomb (1942; 61 minutes): The ancient Egyptian Mummy, Kharis, is transported from his homeland with the high priest Mehemet (Turhan Bey) to wreak vengeance on the family who has defiled the sacred tomb of his beloved Princess Ananka. Compassionately portrayed by Lon Chaney, Jr., Kharis travels to the United States, with companion Mehemet, to seek archaeologist Stephen A. Banning (Dick Foran). Systematically, the last surviving members of the original expedition are killed while Mehemet falls in love with Isobel Evans (Elyse Knox), Banning's beautiful fiance. He futilely tries to use the Mummy to ensnare Isobel to be his high priestess, but is prevented by a fiery mob which destroys him and the mummy in this classic chiller.
THE MUMMY'S HAND: In this first sequel to the original 1932 THE MUMMY, an expedition of American archaeologists travels to Egypt in search of the undiscovered tomb of the princess Ananka. They get more than they bargained for when they find the tomb guarded by a living and very deadly mummy, who will do anything to keep the princess's tomb from being defiled. THE MUMMY'S TOMB: Following after the events of THE MUMMY'S HAND, the Mummy (Lon Chaney, Jr.) is brought over from Egypt to Massachusetts to take revenge on the the archaeologists who disturbed his tomb. Along the way his keeper, a priest of Karnak, falls in love with the fiancee of the dashing hero. Followed by THE MUMMY'S GHOST.
