A four-chapter condensation of the original serial The Lost City of the African Jungle, starring Juanita Hansen, George Chesebro, and lots of real wild animals. A millionaire big game hunter named Jack and his pal Pat O'Malley meet Lola, daughter of the ruler of Wanda--a lost city of white people in Africa's interior -- and free her from a couple of nasty slave traders. Together Jack, Pat and Lola must escape the dangers of the wild and its predators, a pit of lions, and capture by the hooded Black Legion from the Lost City.
This 1920 production was ground-breaking in that it was the first serial set in Africa, the first to feature wild animal action (with lions, tigers, apes and elephants from the Selig zoo), the first "jungle queen" and the first "lost city of the jungle" too. How all those tigers got to Africa, though, we'll never know.
The serial also strongly influenced THE ADVENTURES OF TARZAN, which followed it in 1922.
