THE MUMMY AND THE CURSE OF THE JACKALS PT 02 - John See.... "Championship Title Match - The Mummy Vs. The Jackal In Las Vegas" (1969)
Right now, as an extra added bonus feature, I'd like to share some photos taken at "The Ackermansion" in 2001, when we went to visit Forry to talk to him about being the host for a movie we had made. If you never had a chance to go, here's just a small taste of what you missed!!
Any normal person would die to have this Superman standee that was among a bunch of damaged stuff that was just piled up outside the back entrance of Forry's pad!!
You could walk through room after room covered from celing to floor in posters, lobby cards, books and miniatures!!
This was the man's living room!!
Forry would just open up his house at no charge a couple of Saturday's a month, and after you took the tour, he would answer any and all questions, and maybe even act out the part in some movie with you!! It would blow you away!! The man was a Prince!!
When we were there, the phone rang, and he just looked at me, and said "Would you answer that?" Sure Forry, no problem!!! "Forrest J. Ackerman's residence, can I help you?" what a kick!!
If you didn't already know it, Stephen Spielberg was the President of The Forrest J. Ackerman Fan Club! If that doesn't tell you how important this man's influence was, nothing will!! Forry, we'll always be thinking about you, but, for now, just as you would want it, it's time to go on with the show!!!
So The Mummy dude that was in charge of taking care of Connie decides to check out some of the casinos in Las Vegas! The desert tie-in had to be a streak of genius of director Oliver Drake, or as he was affectionately know as, O.D.!
The Mummy is not real subtle about his abductions, walking right on stage or into a stripper's dressing room! Yet, somehow, lumbering around, he gets away with all of it!!
I'm starting to think that maybe O.D. was responsible for some of this music, since he had a background in soundtrack music! The cat also has a stretch of credits in Cowboy flicks as director, producer, and writer going back to the 1920's!
O.D. also had the writing credits for the 1944 feature, "The Mummy's Curse!" Is this all starting to make sense? Are you starting to understand this movie now??
John Carradine joins the foray towards the end of the film and does the normal cosmic exemplary act, that he always puts in, and pulls off, no matter where or when!!!
So, sure, a whole bunch of other stuff happens, but this film is basically two rampages put to music, one jackal, one mummy, in Las Vegas, and then Connie, the conniving B gets what's coming to her in the end, no more film roles!!!
