Tiger Woman is aided by her followers, a tannish-brown tribe who seem to dress as Aztecs indoors, but as
Navaho outdoors. She is their leader, and they worship her as the White Sky Goddess, the Tiger Woman. 15
years earlier, she and her wealthy father were lost in the jungle after parachuting from a failing airplane.
Whether or not she is heiress to a vast fortune becomes a major plot point, and the criminals lose interest
in their company's oil plans as they hope instead to acquire evidence of Toger Woman's true identity. Then
they plan to replace her with an actress who works for them.
Tiger Woman's allies include Allen Saunders (later B-Western star Allan "Rocky" Lane, and, later still,
the voice for TV's Mr. Ed), who has been hired by the Inter Ocean Oil Company to troubleshoot their
interests in the region. Lane is certainly heroic looking and has a good physical presence. Assisting him
is Jose (Duncan Renaldo, later TV's The Cisco Kid), who gives a relaxed, convincing performance. And it's
a welcome change of pace here that the woman in the serial isn't always needing to be rescued; she even
occasionally rescues the men. However, she does get tied up often and tends to knock out easily.
The opposition is a nice collection of serial actors: George J. Lewis, LeRoy Mason, Crane Whitley, and
Stanley Price. And, as is normal for many Republic serials, Tom Steele (veteran stuntman of over 250
movies) doubles for the hero (Lane) but also serves as one of the lesser henchmen. Theo Lydecker provides
miniatures and special effects, and we have some nice cliffhangers: hero being dropped into a fire pit as
a sacrifice (which has a very nice resolution at the start of Chapter 2), cave ins, burning tunnel shafts,
falling elevators, exploding trucks, exploding boats, exploding buildings, exploding airplanes, exploding
oil derrick, exploding mini torpedoes, and even a runaway mine shaft car.
