Queen of the Jungle is a 1935 independent film serial produced by Herman Wohl and released theatrically by Screen Attractions.


David Worth travels into Africa to find his old friend Joan Lawrence, who disappeared in a hot air balloon as a child while the pair were with an expedition searching for radium deposits. Unknown to David, she was discovered by an African tribe and became their queen.



Most of the action footage in this serial came from the 1922 silent serial The Jungle Goddess, with the principal actors in the new scenes made up and costumed on indoor jungle mockups to match the old outdoor footage.



Screen Attractions released Queen of the Jungle in 1935 as both a 12-chapter serial and a 65-min feature film.
