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

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 »
At some unknown point this feature was edited of about 10 minutes, apparently in the UK by New Realm Pictures, which reissued it. Especially removed was an extended action sequence on board ship to Guatemala in which Tarzan foils an attempt by a Raglan thug to pick Martling's pocket for an important telegram. Inserted in the revised print were closeups of a hand successfully making the pick, then dissolve to the hand passing the document to another, with the next cut being to Raglan reading the paper (he eventually gets it in the original. At some point the feature was redubbed in spots. The most notable change is that d'Arnot calls the native white queen Kia-kia instead of Queen Maya, which she is distinctly called in the serial. This print also carries a disclaimer that "variable atmospheric conditions" in Guatemala, where much of the footage was shot, loused up the sound-track. It is unknown if this disclaimer also appeared on earlier prints of the feature, but it does not occur in the serial print itself where the same material is used. See more »
Greatest of all film -Tarzans in not so great feature version of the original serial
Forget about this feature version of 'The New adventures of Tarzan', and get the complete serial! Too many sequences showing Brix in action are missing from this feature version. Inspite of the long jungle shots and poor sound track- and slow-editing of the material you will come to the the conclusion that Herman Brix is the best movie Tarzan ever.His action scenes will thrill all Tarzan fans. He worked under harsh conditions in the deepest jungle's of Guatamala. doing his own stunts (unlike Weissmuller)
He completed the serial even when he got very ill,lost a lot of weight, was down with jungle fever etc. And all this without even getting paid for the job! Now there's a real Tarzan for you! No wonder Edgar Rice Burroughs (writer-and creator of Tarzan)pointed Brix out as the best film-Tarzan ever...
