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 <>

Did You Know?


The dubbing of the British version was so poorly done that a disclaimer was added to the credits to the effect that the bad sound was caused by "poor atmospheric conditions" encountered by the film's makers in Guatemala. In fact, prints of the serial itself present an adequate soundtrack and no disclaimer: it is unique to the British cut-and-dubbed edition of this feature version. See more »

Tarzan Is Cut Again
13 November 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This is the first of two feature-length films re-edited from the original 12-chapter serial (also titled) "The New Adventures of Tarzan" (1935). The main storyline involves the search for an ancient relic known as "The Green Goddess". As is common with most serial-to-feature works, something is lost in the translation. In the early running, the film spends an inordinate amount of time on its new jungle location footage. "Rough cut" scenes are not edited properly. And, there is juxtaposition of scenes that don't make sense.

"Tarzan" goes from cultured "Lord Greystoke" to swinging in the jungle and back again, with no transitional information.

Muscularly handsome Herman Brix, later known professionally as Bruce Bennett, is fine in the role; but, his Tarzan yell sounds partially wounded. The character is much truer to the original Edgar Rice Burroughs' novels. The chimpanzee "Cheeta" is "Nkima". Those watching the MGM Johnny Weissmuller films should see this Tarzan as fast-forwarded to the near future; our hero has discovered his noble British identity, but occasionally returns to the jungle for new adventures. The ending picks up the pace.
