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

When this movie was released, Ashton Dearholt claimed he had to take the place of an actor named Don Costello, who had been hired to play the evil Raglan, after he had come down with a tropical illness. Not true - Don Costello did not exist, he was just a name Dearholt invented. See more »

Goofs

Attenborough would be proud
14 July 2008 | by (Carlow, Ireland) – See all my reviews

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.

Bbye Bye.
