"Former model Linda Stirling brought statuesque beauty and poise to the role of "Tiger Woman." She could appear wooden at times in her skimpy costume, yet when action was required (as it frequently was in this serial) Stirling delivered the goods. Generally considered the queen of movie serials, Stirling also appeared in her share of westerns.

TIGER WOMAN trivia:
The TIGER WOMAN wore a leopard-spotted outfit because the studio couldn't find any tiger patterned fabric.
The runaway mine car scene was the inspiration for the same sequence in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."
Allan 'Rocky' Lane was a cowboy movie star in the 1940s. Ironically, he would one day portray the voice of a talking horse on TV. Lane's last major role was that of MR. ED.
Tom Steele, who doubled for Lane and played one of the thugs in TIGER WOMAN, did stunt work in over 250 serials and movies, including "The Blues Brothers," "Flash Gordon," "Diamonds are Forever," "Gunga Din," "Blazing Saddles," "Buck Rogers," "The Towering Inferno," "Mighty Joe Young" and "The Poseidon Adventure."
Duncan Renaldo was also a western star, but on early television. In 1949 THE CISCO KID was one of the first TV programs filmed in color, although it was never broadcast that way until decades after the program's demise.
