But the Karlof Mummy did have some sequals. I'm not sure how many.

EDIT

Wikip says:
Unlike Frankenstein and Dracula, and other, later Universal horror films, this film had no sequels, but rather was semi-remade in the 1940's b-film The Mummy's Hand (1940), and its sequels, The Mummy's Tomb (1942), The Mummy's Ghost (1944), The Mummy's Curse (1944), which were later spoofed in 1950's Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy.
and
The 1999 film The Mummy also suggests that it is a remake of the 1932 movie, and may be considered as such in that its titular character is Imhotep, resurrected from the dead by the Scroll of Thoth and out to find the present-day embodiment of the soul of his beloved Anck-su-namun
I would argue that all the films you sight are spin-offs, reboots, and remakes of the 1932 film.

Straight to video, baby! Actually, I think it was a prequel to the prequel. It's also on Netflix Streaming. I might have to check it out, ahahaha...

Yes, but keep his career alive is straining all the resources of the Stone Cutters.

Casino Royale --> Quantum of Solace

Sort of true, the original version of Casino Royale was actually a 1954 television adaptation. So the most recent version was a second remake that spawned a sequel.

And for the people asking about Steve Guttenberg, check out Party Down.
