Tarzan and the Green Goddess (1938)



Reviews and Comments

This is the second of two films edited from the 1935 serial, The New Adventures of Tarzan, the first bearing the same name. Herman Brix (also known as Bruce Bennett) plays the lead role, portraying him as the intelligent, literate English Lord he was in the books. Not surprisingly, this is very much like the first film -- a decent if confusing plot, terrible acting, rousing action, and an unbearable soundtrack. It's less innovative than the first film, however, and the sped-up fight scenes aren't as thrilling as they were at the time. Brix's Tarzan yell remains the most disconcerting of them all.
