Hi Rod and Troy,
I enjoyed your film exploration, filled with insight and humor as always. This episode made me want to re-visit "The Mummy's Tomb," not a film I held in high esteem. But, after listening to your podcast, I, too, might be a bit more generous in my assessments about it.
BTW, at one point in the podcast, you and Troy commented about how different it would have been if "The Mummy's Tomb" was set in the big city instead of a small town. This immediately triggered in my mind scenes from the infamous "The Mummy and the Curse of the Jackals" (1969), wherein the Mummy and the Jackal Man are stumbling through the crowded streets of (I think) Las Vegas. The scene seemed to be shot "on the fly" because you can see many people laughing as the two monsters charge by.
For a demented viewing and possible reviewing, you and Troy might consider covering this crazy movie. After all, it does star John Carradine and Anthony Eisley. :-)
Wishing you two all the best. - Curt
