Storyline

The Green Goddess is a totem worshiped by the primitive natives of a lost city deep in the jungles of Guatemala. It contains both a fortune in jewels and an ancient formula for a super-explosive which could threaten world safety in the wrong hands. From Africa, Major Martling and Ula Vale launch separate expeditions to find the Goddess and place its secrets in safe hands. Ula's fiance died in an earlier attempt at the same goal and she has taken up the trail in his memory against the advice of her lawyer, Hiram Powers, who covets the Goddess for himself and sends Raglan, a mercenary, to get it for him. Aboard their ship to Guatemala is Lord Greystoke - aka Tarzan - on a mission to find his old friend, d'Arnot, whose plane crashed in the vicinity of the same lost city. Tarzan joins forces with Martling, and they reach the lost city in time to save d'Arnot, but lose the Goddess to Raglan. Ula joins Tarzan and Martling in pursuit of Raglan, whence they must contend with the perils of the... Written by <RichWannen@worldnet.att.net>

Trivia

Urban legend has it that the sound quality was so poor that the actors had to be re-dubbed for theatrical release or TV. In fact, the only re-dubbing done was on the 59-minute British reissue print of the feature version, for reasons unknown. A disclaimer was inserted into the credits of this version claiming that the soundtrack had been affected by "variable atmospheric conditions" in 1935 Guatemala, where parts of the serial were shot. In fact, the bad soundtrack was the result of the cheap equipment used on the British re-dub - (see The New Adventures of Tarzan (1935)). No such disclaimer ever appeared on the serial release prints' original titles, and the originally-recorded 1935 soundtrack is being heard there as well as in the second feature version Tarzan and the Green Goddess (1938).

Good take on an interesting character
27 December 2004 | by (Seattle, Wa) – See all my reviews

Herman Brix was an athlete in track and field, he won a silver medal in the Olympics and was breaking into films. This was his first real break, produced by Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs himself, this film goes to the books for inspiration. Although, to the best of my knowledge, it is an original story, the Tarzan character is clearly the intelligent aristocrat of the books, who lives at a manor in England, but returns to the jungles when needed. He speaks in complete sentences, and interacts with other characters on an intellectual level. His chimp sidekick is even named from the books, Nkima. Not short on action, this serial has suspense and drama to satisfy the serial and Tarzan fans quite well. We see that Brix is in perfect shape for the role, and we get to see enough flexed muscles and six-pack abs to prove it. Of all the early Tarzans, Brix has one of the most perfect and realistic builds. His yell is quite interesting, I can't describe it other than as a man who stubbed his toe, and is trying to stifle an obscenity. Certainly worth watching, and full of exotic scenery (shot on location in Guatemala), get this on DVD and have a good time. ***/****
