The Hollywood Reporter review notes that the film "seems to have been inspired by the curse...of Tutankhamen." The Mummy marked the first in a series of classic Universal horror film remakes that the studio co-financed with Hammer Films. According to modern sources, additional swamp scenes were shot at Shepperton Studios in England. Modern sources add James Clarke, John Harrison and Frederick Rawlings to the cast. For more information on other films featuring "The Mummy," please see the Series Index and the record for the 1932 Universal film The Mummy (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40).
