Virginia Christine (March 5, 1920 - July 24, 1996) was an American film and television actress and voice artist.
She was born Virginia Christine Kraft, in Stanton, Iowa. Ms. Christine had a long career as a character actress in film and television, but she is best remembered as "Mrs. Olson" or the "Folgers Coffee Woman", a fictive Swedish character, in a number of television commercials.
Virginia began work in radio while attending UCLA. She was trained for a theatrical career by actor/director Fritz Feld, whom she married in 1940. In 1942, she signed a contract with Warner Bros., and started appearing in various films. Her first film was Edge of Darkness (1942), in which she played a Norwegian peasant girl called "Miss Olson".
She was adept at imitating foreign accents when the role required it. In a 1953 episode of Adventures of Superman called The Lady in Black, she appeared as the title character, effecting a stereotypically mysterious eastern-European accent.
The Mummy's Curse is the 1944 horror film follow-up to The Mummy's Ghost which was also released in 1944. This film marks Lon Chaney Jr.'s final appearance as Kharis, the Egyptian mummy. Many critics and fans believe the final installment to be the weakest.
This installment in the series takes place in Louisiana Cajun country and concerns Princess Ananka, the ancient Egyptian princess for whom Kharis bore a forbidden love. Ananka had previously been reincarnated in The Mummy's Ghost only to die in the swamps. In this film, her body is dug up by land developers and she comes back to life. Kharis terrorizes the local country in his search for her. Interestingly enough, one of the principal leads, Dennis Moore, better known for his western roles and for appearing in the last US movie serial (Blazing the Overland Trail, Columbia, 1956), is not even listed in some of the movie posters for the film.
