Storyline

The Green Goddess is a totem worshiped by the primitive natives of a lost city deep in the jungles of Guatemala, which contains both a fortune in jewels and an ancient formula for a super-explosive which could threaten the world in the wrong hands. From Africa, Major Martling launches an expedition to find the Goddess and place its secret in safe hands. So does Ula Vale, whose fiance died attempting a similar expe- dition, despite the warnings of her lawyer Hiram Powers, who secretly wants the Goddess' contents for himself and has dispatched Raglan, a mercenary, to get it for him. Aboard ship to Guatemala, they meet Lord Greystoke - aka Tarzan - on his way to the same locale to find his old friend d'Arnot, whose plane reportedly crashed near the lost city. On reaching Guatemala, Tarzan, the Martling party and Ula learn of Raglan's devilish mission and that he has a good head start on them... Written by Rich Wannen <RichWannen@worldnet.att.net>

Queen Kia-Kia Looks Like Bargain Basement Mae West
17 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this today for the first time in about 25 years. I wasn't crazy about it then, and I'm still not. This is the cut-down, 70-minute version of a 12-chapter serial. I've never seen the complete version, but this seems so long and drawn out I think I'll pass on that. This was filmed by Edgar Rice Burrough's company under harsh conditions in Africa and Guatemala. A disclaimer at the beginning apologizes for the poor sound track which is, indeed, very poor. Pictorially, this film is much better. In fact the location footage is about the only thing this has going for it. What there is of the story could be condensed into about 25 minutes. There are l-o-n-g scenic passages. One aerial sequence is accompanied by what sounds like a vacuum cleaner on it's last legs. When we do finally get to the conclusion of the picture, we see glorious Queen Kia-Kia, who looks like Mae West slumming. In all, this would have been much better as a straight travelogue, without the pretense of a story. It is pretty to look at, and the comprehensive animal footage is the only reason to watch this.
