Movie Info

The creator of the famous jungle lord, Edgar Rice Burrough's and his production company are behind this Tarzan serial. For added realism, he had it filmed on location in the Guatemalan jungles where the cast and crew really suffered for their art amidst the heat, humidity, poisonous snakes and voracious insects. This is the first, and maybe the only film in which Tarzan speaks fluent English, the kind he spoke in the original book. His latest adventure begins when he is searching for an old friend. Eventually, the great ape-man ends up in the fabulous temple of the Lost Goddess where he finds unimaginable treasure and horror.

Audience Reviews for Tarzan and the Green Goddess


One of the lesser known of the series, this adventure begins slowly, setting up what comes later, wherein our hero ventures to Guatemalan jungles searching for a friend supposedly taken by cannibalistic natives. There's mucho shots of jungle wildlife, which is to say, a lot, and you are encouraged to stick through it all to get to the action at the end: Tarzan against a whole angry nest of natives. Wow factor: Zowie.
