Another classic Creature is born with the silent resurrection of Boris Karloff, as his eye opens among the bandages. It is the priest Imhotep, who has been maladroitly brought back to life by two archeologists and is ready to do anything it takes to also revive his beloved princess. Freund, a great cinematographer who emigrated from Germany in 1929, creates a sophisticated study in black and white about a loving passion which defies death and the centuries. Karloff, with makeup by Pierce, brings one of his most tormented revenants to life.
