My grade school days were in the mid to late 50's era. I loved the black and white Frankenstein movies. The werewolf was also a winner in my book. But for me it was the Mummy and all of it's sequels...The Mummy Returns, The Mummy's Revenge, The Curse of the Mummy...it went on and on!
All the "monster movies" even to this kid were a bit unbelievable. But for some reason...watching the Mummy movies on the "Late Late Show" was unnerving to me. They seemed like with a bit of imagination...they could be real. There was many a night I went to bed holding my breath and listening to every slightest sound in the room until sleep took over and put me out of my misery.
The mummy in this post was taken in a yard in Evansville. I thought it to be a very good rendering of what I saw in my mind's eye while lying in bed those nights after the "Late Late Show".
