SYNOPSIS: Archaeologist Tommy Tweedum gets a lot more excitement than he bargained for when he unearths the tomb of King Rottentot. His nasty nephew Neville and Neville’s wife, Nelda, have been lying in wait to cash in by inheriting all the treasures in the tomb. They pay a shady soothsayer to announce a curse on anyone who touches the tomb. That way, when Tweedum and his daughter Tillie turn up dead, the mummy can take the blame. But they don’t count on Tillie’s beau, Willy Wright, coming all the way from Nebraska to be with his girl. Nor Willy’s mother following him to protect her boy. Nor the arrival of Mr. Calisse, a government agent who protects antiquities. Nor Tommy’s lovelorn assistant Della, who will do anything for him. Nor the sudden appearance of King Rottentot himself! Mistaken identities, corny lines, and a host of pratfalls keep the audience laughing until the inevitable happy ending.
