Includes an introduction by Tony Curtis and a bonus clip of the original theatrical trailer for Boris Karloff's "Frankenstein".
This extremely rare Boris Karloff vehicle had been virtually unavailable in the US until recently. The film has developed something of a "lost classic" reputation over time when after years of searching, a print was finally foundin New York City in 1969. Karloff's first British film casts him as Prof. Morlant, an eccentric English Egypologist obsessed with the powers of the ancient Egyptian gods. On his deathbed he commands his servant, Laing, to bind the sacred jewel known as "The Eternal Light" to his hand, warning that if the jewel is stolen, he will return from the grave seeking revenge... Karloff's presence and an excellent cast move this moody and atmospheric classic cult film along at a great pace.(Based on the novel and play by Dr Frank King, Leonard J Hines)
