Actually it's not ArkaM but ArkaN, which is a rough anagram of Karnak. Anagrams were popular at the time.
Tom Tyler was a former Olympic weightlifter who due to impoper training  was suffering from early onset arthritis, which inspired  his painful shuffle. In later years he bcame almost a total invalid before dying of a heart attack at age 50.

 I know I've seen all the Mummy films, but they did tend to blend together.  Maybe, because of the reuse of old footage.  Either way, the only one that holds firmly in my heart is the Karloff classic.  I still feel it has yet to be topped by any other mummy monster movie.  

Since I was a kid before recorders, it was very hard to piece together some form of continuity with the Universal monster films.  Not sure why they had that problem.  I can see when it comes to actors not wanting to play a part again, but story wise...just seems like they had little respect for the films at some point.
