The Mummy

Terence Fisher (director)
Jimmy Sangster (screenwriter)
Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Yvonne Furneaux (starring)

N.p. Hammer Film Productions, 1959. Collection of ten vintage photographs (two reference photographs and eight studio still photographs) from the 1959 film.

Three photos shown. Please inquire for additional images.

Although an ostensible remake of the hit 1932 Universal film, Hammer Film adaptation of this title borrowed its plot largely from Universal's "The Mummy's Hand" (1940) and "The Mummy's Tomb" (1942), with the climax taken directly from "The Mummy's Ghost" (1944).

When British archeologists, led by John Banning (Peter Cushing), despoil the tomb of an Egyptian high priestess Princess Anaka (Yvonne Furneaux), they awaken her keeper and former, lover high priest Kharis (Christopher Lee).

The only Hammer film to feature the actor combination of Lee, Cushing and Michael Ripper.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus to Near Fine, some light creasing, one with two closed tears and pinholes and one photo with top right corner clipped.
