Peggy Moran as Marta Solvani

By far the most perky and animated of all the women in the Kharis series, Peggy Moran portrayed Marta Solvani in The Mummy's Hand (1940) as independent, resourceful, warm, and thoroughly likable. Not simply a romantic stage prop, she plays a major role in moving the action along, and makes an important contribution to the Banning expedition with her theory that the cave tomb of Kharis is connected via tunnel to the hidden tomb of the Princess Ananka.
