The Tiger Woman (1944)
Linda Sterling (1921–1997), a former fashion model, was one the sound serial’s most popular heroines. She debuted in the role of the Tiger Woman with Allan Lane (1909–1973) as her supporting actor. The serial was re-released in 1951 under the title Perils of the Darkest Jungle. The plot centers on the efforts of local speculators who secretly scheme to lay claim to oil reserves somewhere in South America by running the natives off the land and sabotaging current drilling operations by a rival company. Ruling the tribe is the mysterious white Tiger Woman. The saboteurs try to undermine her authority by attempting to reveal her true identity as a millionaire heiress who survived a plane crash over the jungle when she was a child.
