Thereafter The Mummy is a thoroughly unreasonable hocus-pocus in which it develops that the reanimated mummy is enamored of the archeologist's fiancee (Zita Johann) who, in a previous incarnation, was an Egyptian priestess. To consummate his romance, the mummy tries to kill the archeologist's fiancee, but goes about it too deliberately to be successful. Typical shot: Karloff and Johann seated beside a tubful of hot water in the steam of which they discern scenes from their life in 1767 B. C.
