Jungle Gold is the 100-minute cutdown version of the 12-episode Republic serial The Tiger Woman. Linda Stirling makes her serial debut as the Tiger Woman, an athletic young lady who aids hero Allan Lane in his efforts to track down criminals in the jungle town of Alta Vista. Lane is a representative of an oil firm whose fields are being sabotaged by persons unknown. The Tiger Woman is blamed for the sabotage, but she is able to expose the real criminals and their motives, and also to discover her own true identity. The thrilling "cliff hanger" climaxes are somewhat blunted by repetition in this reedited feature, but Perils of the Darkest Jungle still proves beyond doubt that Republic was head and shoulders above everyone else in the chapter-play business.
