Virginia Christine as
The Princess Ananka

Known to millions as Mrs. Olsen from the Folger's Coffee TV adds, Virginia Christine debuted as the reincarnated Princess Ananka in The Mummy's Curse (1944), the final film of the Universal Kharis series. It was not an easy role for her to play, and necessitated that she literally be buried alive for the famous sequence when she emerges from the swamp. This scene, showing the mud-caked Christine staggering out of the Bayou, is one of the most eerie in the whole mummy saga. She is best remembered by 50's sci-fi fans for her role as Wilma Lentz in Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956.) (Wilma is the lady who reports that her "Uncle Ira" really isn't himself anymore.)
