Joan Redmond (Betty Jane Rhodes) has inherited a vast fortune ... but there is one problem attached to that: Joan had gone missing in the African jungle when she was a child, in a disaster that got her parents killed, and she was brought up by lions. Soon she was thus dubbed "the Lion Goddess" by the natives. Two (white) criminals called the Cobra (Henry Brandon) and Shanghai Lil (Evelyn Brent) were quick to take advantage of Joan, and with the Cobra claiming to be her father, he not only gains control over her but also over the tribes who worship her. Because you know, the Cobra and Shanghai Lil have a problem - they can't have any white folks stumbling into their domain, because white folks might recognize them from wanted posters - but with a safety belt of natives around them, who would even dare to enter their realm ...

Well, there's of course Redmond (Bryant Washburn), Joan's cousin who would get his hands onto the family fortune if she ... just disappeared. And to that end, he has hired two cutthroats, LaBat (Paul Sutton) and Slade (Al Bridge), to take care of the job, and guide Halihan (Frank McGlynn jr) to take them there. But Halihan is an honest man, so to get rid of Joan, he has to be gotten rid of first ...

When Jungle Jim (Grant Withers) and his sidekick Malay Mike (Raymond Hatton) learn about the death of their friend, they go investigate ... and soon find Joan - and of course get into the crossfire between Redmond and friends on one side, Cobra and Shanghai Lil on the other - who sometimes cooperate, sometimes work against each other, and even Redmond and LaBat and Slade seem to have conflicting interests every now and again - and thus it's many chases, shoot-outs, fistfights, animal attacks and whatnot all over the local jungle.

Eventually, a pilot, Hawks (William Royle), turns up with a plane that could get Redmond and Slade (LaBat had to die earlier on) out of here, but Slade thinks it's a better idea to kill Redmond and get Joan to civilisation to get his hands on her inheritance. Then though Hawks turns out to be a policeman on the trail of the Cobra ...

Anyways, after tons of jungle-related action, Joan manages to topple the Cobra and turn the natives against him, and ultimately it's Jungle Jim who tracks him down in the jungle while Slade is taken in by Malay Mike ... and then Jim takes Joan to civilisation to claim her inheritance - and it looks likely for the two of them to become a couple as well ...


Jungle Jim is a fun jungle serial, full of unlikely ideas, a rather ignorant depiction of the jungle as such (like lions and tigers living side by side), stock footage aplenty that not always totally matches the freshly shot material, and so on and so forth ... but it's also well-timed, there's action aplenty, the ideas, as wild as they might be, are also fun, and some nice sets help as well of course. Basically, maybe not the most intellectual entertainment, but a fun cliffhanger.
