ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE MUMMY (1955) ***

This was the last film the team did for Universal.  After they were fired, they did one more film (Dance With Me Henry) and then split up.  Bud Abbott and Lou Costello find a cursed medallion that leads to a treasure hidden inside a pyramid.  Unfortunately, it’s guarded by Klaris the Mummy (Eddie Parker).  The bit where the medallion is hidden in a hamburger roll is priceless and is the comedic highlight.  The mummy costume is pretty shoddy, but the laughs are there.  With Marie Windsor.
