Couldn't they tell a leopard from a tiger?
22 September 2001 | by Teenie-1See all my reviews

In reviewing "Panther Girl of the Kongo" I confused the costume for this film as being the one that Phyllis Coates wore in "Panther Girl." Sor-ry. This film has the heroine (Linda Stirling) wearing a leopard skin costume and being called "The Tiger Woman." She does not resemble a tiger in any way, shape or form. "Monkey Woman" is more suitable as all she does is swing through trees and get knocked out cold in her many fights with the villains. Allan "Rocky" Lane mugs as the hero (he was better as "Mr. Ed") who is ever-so-hell-bent on building an oilwell but keeps getting foiled by old hand-me-down George J. Lewis who is ever-so-hell-bent on not having it built. The stuntwoman for Linda Stirling has a bit to do here, but doesn't get quite the workout that the one for Kay Aldridge did in "Nyoka and the Tigermen." Duncan Renaldo could not play anyone but "The Cisco Kid." The Cisco Kid never had to play a scene where he looked scared. The scene where the water is rushing into a cave (boy, Republic loved those caves, didn't they?) and traps Stirling and Renaldo equals Will's crocodile tears session on "Big Brother 2." Puh-leeze. Not convincing in the least. Nothing better on TV? Kill time with this one. (if only to see Allan Lane at his conceited worst.)
