Lon, a Ghoul From Far Away

Guess who played a mummy from Egypt.
Off to the New World he'd be shypt.
Now mind you, young Chaney
Declined to complain; he
Well knew that his contract he'd see clypt.

The Mummy's Curse (Leslie Goodwins; 1944)  marks Lon Chaney, Jr.'s third and final appearance as Kharis, the Egyptian mummy. The 1940s Universal Mummy films moved the setting from Egypt to the United States.
