An X-ray machine reveals the presence of a corpse in an Egyptian sarcophagus. It is not that of an ancient pharaoh. Instead the body is that of recently murdered archaelogist.
A pretty good Chan adventure,this one may bother some of the more PC viewers with the inclusion of African-American comedian Stepin Fetchit,who plays the typical shuffling,whiny black sterotype common in movies back then.
Look for an early appearance by future star Rita Hayworth (under her real name,Cansino).
