In 'The Mummy's Hand' (1940) thousands of years after ancient Egyptian high priest Kharis (Tom Tyler) was buried alive for attempting to revive his dead lover, adventurers Steve Banning (Dick Foran) and Babe Jenson (Wallace Ford) lead an expedition in search of Kharis's tomb.

In the sequel, 'The Mummy's Tomb' (1942), 30 years after his tomb was desecrated by Steve Banning's expedition, the mummified Kharis (Lon Chaney Jr.) and high priest Andoheb travel to America to wreak revenge on Banning and his former partner Babe Hanson (Ford).
