Universal Pictures' classic 1932 production of The Mummy, directed by Karl Freund from an original story by Nina Wilcox Putnam and Richard Schayer, starred the legendary Boris Karloff as Imhotep, spawning a crop of Mummy films over the years.

Universal went on to produce The Mummy's Hand (1940), The Mummy's Tomb (1942), The Mummy's Ghost (1944) and The Mummy's Curse (1945). Twenty years later, Britain's Hammer Films was given license to make Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (1964), The Mummy's Shroud (1966) and Blood From the Mummy's Tomb (1971), making international stars of both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.

The success of the Mummy films helped establish Universal Pictures as an industry leader in the horror genre, and served as a springboard for other monster properties at Universal, including Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Invisible Man.
