The Mummy (1959) Reminder

This is one of the few Hammer trailers that actually works! 50 years later, I'd still love to watch Christopher Lee as the ruthless Mummy. For some reason, this role suits him much beter than the similar role of the monster in The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) either because The Mummy is a much more fluid film overall or because I cannot get Boris Karloff off my mind when thinking of the classic Shelley character.
