Photobomb Friday: The Tiger Woman's Moral Dilemma!

She was the "IT" girl of the Saturday matinees. Despite having made only 4 serials and a handful of movies in the 1940s, Linda Stirling was the crush of three generations of boys and men alike due to those serials' constant re-releases to theaters and television. Her best known role was as the misnamed Tiger Woman in the serial of that title. Looking great in that strangely designed costume was a major achievement. She transformed it from silly to sexy with her jaunty performance.
(There's the smile that won The Mayhem's heart.)
So, any excuse to run a few pics of one of my first crushes, here's a mini-gallery of Linda at work:
(Earnest in action!)

(Oh, Nurse!!!)

(She's striking in The Purple Monster Strikes.)

(You can tell she's no liar -- her pants aren't on fire.)

(Linda can't return your calls right now -- She's all tied up!)
If you like the serials and goofy gags about them, you might enjoy my Cliffhanger Cut-Ups magazine, now on Amazon:

  1. I have to admit I don't remember ever seeing a Tiger Woman serial, but I can see why she's worthy of a youthful crush.

  2. It's never to late to catch The Tiger Woman!
