It owes a lot to "Dracula," which it seems very much influenced by, but "The Mummy" is a credit in it own right thanks to its dark and mystical story and one of Karloff's greatest performances.

The original. Seems like way more than 72 minutes. Dreamy, moody, mysterious. Superior to all the remakes (though the Brandon Fraser one is fun and action-packed). .
