Mummy's Boys (1936)

Directed by Fred Guiol
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
(Turner Classic Movies)

Wheeler and Woolsey romp around an old Egyptian set in one of their better comedies. Two ditch diggers volunteer for a scientific expedition to Cairo to dig up an old tomb. Instead, they get mixed up in murder and curses. It's really just a series of sketches by the comedy duo, some better than others. My favorite bit is the "crow flies" and tattooed map.
