The Mummy - The Legacy Collection 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
AmericanWomanAdvocate More than 1 year ago
The films on this DVD were of excellent quality, especially considering they were filmed between 1940-44, and NOT digitally enhanced. There was only a little bit of crackling, but that is part of their charm. I was surprised that the original Mummy films were barely an hour long for each. I am a big fan of classic horror films, and look forward to buying more from this collection.

This Legacy Collection is probably the weakest out of the three major monster collections (The Wolfman and Dracula take 1st and 2nd place). What really brings this collection down is the addition of two truly silly, poorly made movies with Dick Foran and Wallace Ford. The movies are entitled "The Mummy's Hand" and the sequel "The Mummy's Tomb." Don't worry if you've neer seen them, just be aware that these movies were churned out cheaply to garner some profit from the Mummy franchise. Think of Abbott and Costello without the terrific humor, plot, and camera work. These two movies simply do not hold up the collection and it's annoying to see such weak ones added. The third movie is okay, with Lon Chaney as the Mummy. It's set in the Louisiana Bayou area. A bit different from the usual Egyptian or English country settings. I wanted to get this set to complete my collection of famous monsters, but it's simply not worth it. I love Boris Karloff, but I would rather get his Mummy movie separately.
