Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Aileen Pringle tackles a dual role in the comedy actioner Wilderness Woman. Actually, both heroines -- hoydenish Junie and sophisticated Juneau MacLean -- are the same person. Here's the lowdown: Junie, the hard-fightin', hard-drinkin' daughter of cantankerous Alaska gold miner Kodiak MacLean (Chester Conklin), decides to take action when her dad is swindled by a pair of New York sharpsters. Heading into the heart of Manhattan to catch the crooks, Junie is sidetracked into a beauty parlor, where she gets a total makeover. Now the poised, glamorous "Juneau MacLean," our heroine catches the eye of handsome engineer Alan Burkett (Lowell Sherman). Joining forces, Juneau and Alan track down the villains and give them a sound thrashing, with Juneau (reverting to "Junie") dishing out most of the punishment.
