Remember my complaint over Larry Talbot being healed of lycanthropy in House Of Dracula, only to be cursed with it again in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein? The Mummy’s Tomb in 1942 did a same cruel postscript to happy coda of The Mummy’s Hand. Steve Banning and partner “Babe Jenson” (Wallace Ford) enjoy comfortable old age, their Mummy struggle now the stuff of distant recall. The Mummy’s Tomb begins its sorry mission by letting Kharis kill off both likeable heroes of the Hand struggle, a nihilist what-is-life-but-futility-and-eventual death? to ones of us watching at impressionable age. It bothered me lots in June 1965, seven months after seeing The Mummy’s Hand. I felt Universal pointing at me to say that no matter the enemy you fight against and vanquish, he will eventually be back to kill you. I hope 1940 youth who saw The Mummy’s Hand and wanted to grow up and be Steve Banning did not show up for The Mummy’s Tomb in 1942.
