Johann's most memorable film role was as Helen Grosvenor/Princess Anck-es-en-Amon in the 1932 horror film, The Mummy, which starred Boris Karloff as Im-Ho-Tep/Ardeth Bey.

She appeared in a number of other films, including The Tiger Shark (also 1932), through 1939, when she returned to the stage. Johann, who made her final appearance in the 1986 made-for-TV movie, Raiders of the Living Dead, was married to producer-actor John Houseman from 1929-1933. Lightly rippled. Slightly soiled at blank margins and on verso. Overall, fine condition.
