This early British horror film stars Boris Karloff, Cedric Hardwicke, Ernest Thesiger and Ralph Richardson, in his film debut. Egyptologist and professor Henry Morlant (Boris Karloff) comes back from the dead to punish those who have violated his tomb and betrayed him. 

In the 1930s and 50s the artist of this poster, Marc Stone, worked as a poster designer for the Gaumont British Film Studios. He also illustrated pulp paperback covers, and numerous British magazine covers. During World War II up to the early 60s Stone designed recruitment posters for the Armed Forces. Horror posters are the most sought-after genre in film poster collecting.
