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>

a politically incorrect Tarzan film

The carnage in this film is appalling. A machine gun is set up and mows down literally dozens and dozens of angry Guatemalan "natives." Why are they angry? Because white people have come into their territory to steal a religious symbol from them. One of the packers is murdered, but his death isn't missed by anyone, not even Tarzan. The film begins with Tarzan fighting and killing a lion, and later on he fights and kills an alligator, but he hasn't even got a scratch on him from these encounters. The natives spared the surviving pilot, but no mention is made of the two passengers and what happened to them. The idea that Tarzan, lord of the jungle, would allow the murder of so many natives without showing any remorse would seem to contradict his responsibility as "lord of the jungle." Compare this concept with the film "Tarzan and the Amazons," where the intruders are justly punished and Tarzan protects the "lost' civilization. I appreciate the interpretation given by Bruce Bennett of an articulate Tarzan, but the writers of the screenplay have a lot to answer for in their stereotyping of native peoples who make good target practice.
