The Green Goddess is a totem worshiped by the primitive natives of a lost city deep in the jungles of Guatemala.

I am here watching this movie for the first time with my good friend Roly. The date is 14 July 2008. I have to say that for 1935, when the likes of Joe Louis were boxing their way to stardom, the photography is excellent. Unfortunately the photography is mostly taken up with vistas of the great African Planes (In Puerto Rico). I was particularly made nervous by the scene in which Bruce Bennett appeared to kiss Cheetah on the lips. Of course I can forgive this because I am looking at it in a 2008 frame of mind and I am naturally homophobic.
Look, its like this, the movie is mostly just camera shots of wild "Africa" with no acting whatsoever. The director should be dug up and shot. It's a disaster. Gordon Scott will be turning in his grave, not to mention Johnnny Weismuller and Cheetah! If you don't allow this onto IMDb, then you are stifling free speech and you believe in a Brigadoon-like civilisation where nobody says anything bad. 1935 it is. Good cinematography it has. Storyline it definitely hasn't.
YES you should buy it. Just so you can go through what I went through.
