  • They dared the curse of the ancients... to solve the most amazing mystery ever encountered by mortal man!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Andoheb: You are very beautiful... so beautiful I'm going to make you immortal. Like Kharis, you will live forever. What I can do for you I can do for myself. Neither time nor death can touch us. You and I together for eternity here in the Temple of Karnak. You shall be my high priestess.
  • Babe Jenson: Hey Steve, can a dame go crazy from being sawed in half too many times?
  • Steve Banning: What happened, Babe? Babe Jenson: I was practicing my rock trick. Steve Banning: Maybe next time you should practice on a pebble.
  • Babe Jenson: Little girls who play with guns get hurt. Marta Solvani, Stage Name of Marta Sullivan: I'll get hurt? [fires shots into the door]
  • Steve Banning: Those jackals are giving me goose pimples. Babe Jenson: Aw they're giving me goose pimples on top of my goose pimples.
Movie Trivia:
  • To make the mummy appear more frightening, Tom Tyler's eyes (and the inside of his mouth) were blacked out frame-by-frame in almost all close-ups.
  • Due to a clerical oversight, The Mummy's Hand (1940) was never legally made available for television viewings, and remained largely unseen until Universal Studios VHS release in 1997.
  • The excavation scenes were shot on the Universal back-lot in a rocky and desert-like section of the natural hills known as "Gausman's Gulch," named after Russell A. Gausman, set decorator on this film, and many other of Universal's horror films. To give the gulch a more canyon-like and wild appearance, it was augmented with artificial rock-faces and boulders.
