Mummy's the Word
He's as dry as the crispiest toast
Oh so quiet, as if he's a ghost
Cut the Mummy's tongue out,
And the dummy can't shout,
Nor reply with a witty riposte.
The Mummy's Ghost (Reginald Le Borg, 1944). John Carradine is the high priest, Lon Chaney is the mummy, and Ramsay Ames is his reincarnated love, Princess Ananka. We silently thank David Cairns.
