Storyline

Dr. John Meredith has been driven from civilization by the criminal activities of his twin brother Bradley Meredith. With his infant daughter, he settles in the African jungle, where his ability to cure the native ills has resulted in his virtual control of the Masamba tribes, who possess vast diamond mines coveted by a gang of crooks. They use Shamba, a witch doctor jealous of Dr. Meredith's influence over the tribe, to further their schemes. They lure Dr. Meredith away from the jungle, and he is murdered by "Slick" Latimer. The natives believe that a sacred amulet is the secret of Dr. Meredith's power, and Shamba attempts to kill Nyoka, Meredith's now-grown-up daughter, to obtain the amulet (which actually contains the secret to the entrance of the Caves of Nakros). Jack Stanton rescues her and assists her in her efforts to recover the amulet. Latimer works with Shamba, and with Bradley Meredith, who poses as his murdered-brother so successfully that even Nyoka does not realize the ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Good stories need bad villains.
20 January 2005 | by (Ocala, Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

I was a grammar school student (grades 1-6) when this serial," Jungle Girl", was shown on Saturday afternoons in our neighborhood Fairfax Theater in Jacksonville, Florida. My friend Stewart and I loved this serial and we also were enthralled by the "The Batman" serial. A "Dick Tracy" serial was also shown around the same period. But Jungle Girl was the best of them all. Every adventure story needs a good villain and Slick Latimer, played by Gerald Mohr was outstanding. I never realized that he even had a first name until I saw the reviews here on IMDb. We kids just called him "Latimer" and we hated his guts. Each week for fifteen episodes this conniving snake would betray the beloved Nyoka and her friends Jack and Curley. Then the evil Latimer would slip us kids in the audience this sly smirk. It was a masterpiece of infuriation that made us so mad we were ready to chew the upholstery out of the arm rests. A few years ago I rented the original "Red Planet" movie which starred Gerald Mohr. After 50 years I had forgiven him. Well after all, he was now a good guy.
