a Hammer Film production
directed by John Gilling
starring Andre Morell, John Phillips,
David Buck, Elizabeth Sellars


Beware the beat of the
cloth-wrapped feet!

Hammer Films
take on the marvellous
Mummy... erm, again! In this outing,
Sir Basil Walden (Andre Morell) uncovers
an ancient Egyptian tomb, and the
Boy-Pharaoh's mummified manservant
Prem. In no time at all, a cursed gypsy
woman brings the thing back to life
and lots of bloody bandaged mayhem
ensues, in and around the Cairo

For those keeping count, this was the
the third of four Mummy films produced
by Hammer, and was the last featuring
that iconic bandaged monster design.

Under the wraps this time around is
stuntman Eddie Powell.

Catherine Lacey
puts in a fantastic,
drooling performance as Haiti, the
malevolent fortune-teller!

This film has the distinction of being
the last film Hammer ever made at Bray
. Upon its completion, they
upped sticks and relocated to Elstree.

The Mummy's Shroud
wasn't well-received
upon first release, but it's aged very
well; it's nimble and it has some
super flash and style when the
mayhem starts!

Peter was the stunt arranger on the film.
He also stepped in as a memorable double
for the film's lead actor, Andre Morrel...


Peter spotted!

Peter appears in the Cairo Museum,
into the film.


In Peter's big scene, an Egyptian chap
is observed swanning around the museum,
prior to opening. He's supposed to be
dusting the place, but he's making a
poor show of it.

Eventually, he reaches a big cupboard.
He opens it, and retreives a hidden
bottle of booze. Unbelievably, he
hasn't noticed the bloodied corpse
of Sir Basil hanging on the right-hand
