Although the facilities at Bray had been added to and extended over the years it was becoming increasingly clear that they could no longer cope with Hammer’s ambitions for the future and “The Mummy’s Shroud” was the last film that the Company made there. It was the end of an era. In the character of the sycophantic Longbarrow, Michael Ripper gives what is generally thought to be his best performance for Hammer. David Buck was known to television audiences in the sixties as the man who introduced ABC TV’s series of late-night ghost and horror chillers “Mystery and Imagination”. Ad-line: “Beware the beat of the cloth-wrapped feet!”
