Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy is the last of the team's vehicles for Universal-International. Stranded in Egypt, Bud and Lou hire themselves out as travelling companions to archeologist [[Performer~P37029~Kurt Katch~kurtkatch]]. Before long, [[Performer~P37029~Katch~kurtkatch]] is murdered by a group of cultists, and a medallion, embossed with a map which leads to a sacred burial site, is accidentally swallowed by [[Performer~P15240~Costello~loucostello]]. The boys become the unwilling pawns of the cultists, led by [[Performer~P18095~Richard Deacon~richarddeacon]], and a greedy adventuress, played by [[Performer~P76885~Marie Windsor~mariewindsor]]. The last scene finds [[Performer~P15240~Costello~loucostello]] being menaced by three mummies, two of them bogus. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
