They are playing in the basket of the party's air balloon when the bag takes off with Joan aboard, last seen sailing over the back-lot jungle. This puts a chill on the expedition and all hands return to whence they came. The end of chapter 1, "Lost in the Clouds", finds Marilyn's balloon being shot down by the flaming arrows of a native tribe. Chapter 2,"Radium Rays", reveals that Joan survived her descent and the tribe named "the child from the sky" as their queen and priestess.A flash forward of about 18 years finds that the now-adult David has returned to Africa to search for his long-lost childhood friend.He hits the trail and is quickly captured by the tribesmen and is brought to their sadistic ruler,who turns out to be a now-grown Joan. Unaware of his or her own true ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

Because of budget limitations, extensive use was made of stock footage from the serial The Jungle Goddess (1922); even the story from the earlier serial was woven into the plot of the later one. Considering the changes in dramatic technique, film stock, makeup, etc., that had taken place in the intervening 13 years, plus the fact that the silent footage was printed and projected at an abnormally fast sound speed, the results were both hilarious and disastrous.

Lions, leopards and radium
13 March 2008 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Queen of the Jungle" (1935) tells the story of Joan who drifted in a balloon across Africa when she was a child, was found by the tribe called Lion Men and became their queen. 20 years later, she is discovered by David, an old friend, and he tries to bring her back to her parents although she does not even remember who they were. Naturally, it becomes a long, dangerous journey through the jungle with countless enemies. Divided into 12 chapters, each one ends of course with a cliffhanger that keeps you watching the next part. "Queen of the Jungle" suffers technically from the fact that it used a lot of footage from the 1922 silent movie production "The Jungle Goddess" which runs at double speed which makes it obviously not fit well. But as an action adventure, it is rather nice, featuring lions, leopards, crocodiles and an evil high priest who has a lot of the mysterious element radium to hide. Those were the days when people thought anything radioactive glows like a torch and can be hold in your bare hands. Nostalgic fun, but nothing extraordinary.
