Movie Info

As The Mummy Strikes opens, Miss Hogan, assistant to noted scientist Dr. Jordan, finds the doctor's dead body in the Metropolis Egyptian Museum, a syringe nearby. Miss Hogan is accused of murder and found guilty. After her trial, Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent is contacted by Dr. Wilson from the museum, who says he has evidence to clear Hogan. Kent goes to the museum, secretly followed by Lois Lane, who eavesdrops on their conversation. Wilson explains that he has translated some heiroglyphics Jordan had been working on and that he believes Jordan had injected an "elixir of life" into the four mummified guards that surround the coffin of King Tush, and then had tried to open the King's coffin, thereby bringing down upon himself the Tush curse. When Kent tries to open the coffin, he finds that doing so releases a poisoned needle, which must have killed the doctor. It also brings the King's guards back to life, and they promptly attack Jordan and Lois. Kent switches to Superman and makes short work of them ,and the film ends with the news that Hogan has been released.

Audience Reviews for Superman

The title should read The Mummy Strikes. Let's throw in an Egyptian story with the tomb of King Tush instead of King Tutt. A poor girl who is a doctor's assistant is accused of the murder of the doctor. Then most of this short is a loose lesson on Egyptian culture in a reconstructed tomb with no Superman in sight.

A mummy exhibit comes to town, and the mummies come to life...guess who must come in to save the day? I liked this entry a little more than the average Famous Studio Superman shorts. It has enough action and Superman heroics to be enjoyable, and it has a more fantasy-based story, which I like.
