The Mummy is the Rodney Dangerfield of classic monsters -- he gets norespect. But Hammer's sumptuous, beautifully filmed and acted treatmentis as good as your going to find. It is also the most detailed mummyfilm around, with the recreation of its Egyptian tomb gorgeous andauthentic. Christopher Lee is little short of brilliant in thethankless title role, actually managing to giving a compelling and attimes touching performance through only his eyes and body language.Peter Cushing is superb as always (and was it a deliberate decision tomake his character's lameness a wry twist on the fact that Kharis themummy was always lame in the old Universal movies?), as is Hammersemi-regular George Pastell in the stereotypicalmummy-controller-in-the-fez part. The supporting cast is also classierthan usual for Hammer: Sir Felix Aylmer as Cushing's father iswonderful, aging amazingly convincingly and establishing himself as oneof the great gibberers of the cinema; while Raymond Huntley is solid asCushing's sensible uncle (and as London's first stage Dracula, onewonders what conversations he must have had on the set with Lee).Hammer regular Michael Ripper also has one of his best parts as asodden eyewitness to the mummy's activities. Director Terrence Fisher(another Rodney Dangerfield) contributes many memorable touches, thoughprobably none so effective as the agonizing sloooooooowwwwness withwhich the stone door of the secret chamber concealing the cursed Khariscloses, which emphasizes the horrific agony of living burial.Everything in this film works, and some elements, such as thephotography and the excellent music score, exceed even Hammer's usuallyhigh standards. "The Mummy" might be the British studio's best film. Itis certainly one of their best.

England&#39;s Hammer Studios existed primarily as a distributor--until thelow budget 1955 THE QUATERMASS EXPERIMENT suddenly put the studio onthe map. Sensing an untapped market, Hammer began to develop similartitles and by the early 1960s developed a style that mixed Victoriansets and costumes with bouffant hairstyles, bared breasts, and lots ofblood. The films were largely responsible for jolting the horror genreback to life on both sides of the Atlantic, as popular in the UnitedStates as they were in England.<br><br>Released in 1959, THE MUMMY was among Hammer&#39;s earliest color films andhelped lay out the visual style that come to dominate &quot;Hammer Horror&quot;for more than a decade. Drawing from Universal&#39;s 1932 THE MUMMY and1940 THE MUMMY&#39;S HAND, it opens with a band of Victorian-eraarchaeologists in Egypt, where they discover the lost tomb of PrincessAnanka--and in the process unleash a mummy cursed to guard herthroughout eternity. It is a curse that follows the men back toEngland, where they are stalked to their deaths one by one.<br><br>Director Terence Fisher and cinematographer Jack Asher worked a numberof Hammer films, including the earlier HORROR OF Dracula and REVENGE OFFRANKENSTEIN. Although some of the lighting may give you pause--judgingfrom all the backlighting and colored filters it would seem the ancientEgyptians had mood lighting installed in their tombs--their effortsresult in a series of truly arresting visuals; in their hands, brightcolor is no obstacle to moodiness. The cast plays it out extremelywell, with the lovely Yvonne Furneaux a classic Hammer beauty, PeterCushing as her archaeologist husband, and (yes, the posture and bearingreally is unmistakable) Christopher Lee under wraps for the title role.<br><br>The DVD contains no extras beyond the original trailer, and althoughthe transfer is not pristine it is nonetheless very good indeed. HammerHorror may not save the world, but it is often a lot of fun--and THEMUMMY is easily among the studio&#39;s best. Recommended.<br><br>GFT, Amazon Reviewer

The Mummy capped off an impressive initial run of horror movies fromHammer Studios. Believe it or not, it was mostly downhill from here;the company's subsequent efforts tended to be tackier and cheesier. Butthe &quot;big three&quot; (Curse of Frankenstein, Horror of Dracula, The Mummy)are all solid horror flicks with, oddly enough, some of the most crispand colorful photography I've ever seen.<br><br>There are some weaknesses here, though. The Egypt flashback waffles onfor quite a while, and then we get ANOTHER flashback when Banning Sr.resurrects the mummy. However, the beginning and ending are well-pacedand exciting, so most sins are forgiven. Lee's Mummy is spectacular;he's goddamn huge, and it's very impressive to watch him crashingthrough doors and French windows, absorbing shotgun blasts as if theywere pinpricks (I hear Lee actually got injured several times makingthis movie; I can't say I'm surprised!)<br><br>My favorite scene is the ideological debate between the Egyptian badguy(a very cool performance by George Pastell) and Peter Cushing's snootyarchaeologist character. Their heated exchange adds a bit of texture tothe story and even makes me sympathetic to the villain's POV. However,subtext goes out the window again for the violent final confrontation.<br><br>On a side note, the exceedingly brilliant BBC show Doctor Whopractically remade this movie twice. The episode &quot;Tomb of the Cybermen&quot;features Pastell as a guest star in a story involving an ill-fatedarchaeological dig, and &quot;Pyramids of Mars&quot; once again pits a haplesspoacher against killer mummies. Just thought I'd mention it.
