Free Screening of The Mummy’s Hand

On October 4, Come See: The Mummy’s Hand

October is American Archives Month and the library’s new film curator, Ben Harry, is celebrating by offering a special screening of a classic horror film. He sent us this:

THE MUMMY’S HAND (Universal, 1940)

Adventurous and humorous horror movie featuring secret tombs in crumbling temples, ancient rituals, and the possibility of immortality. The mummy Kharis (Tom Tyler) returns to exact revenge when out-of-work archaeologists (Dick Foran and Wallace Ford) disturb his beloved’s tomb. Peggy Moran and Cecil Kellaway round out the heroes cast as the expedition’s backers; while George Zucco plays the creeping villain. After the original The Mummy terrorized the screen in 1932, this well-received follow-up spawned three sequels of its own.

Celebrating archives month in Special Collections, we are championing relics like mummy Kharis that can still come to life after years in a vault!

This is a great chance to rediscover an old, low-budget classic that you probably haven’t seen before! With a runtime just over an hour, come cuddle up with your sweetheart for a spooky good time!

Black & white, 16mm archival print from the Henry Koster Collection, 66 min.

Special day and time, Thursday, October 4, at 7:30 pm.

Admission is free.
