Audience Reviews for Tarzan and the Green Goddess
It?s not up with the Weismuller versions, but it certainly has a unique perspective. It?s set in Guatemala rather than Africa and is produced by Edgar Rice Burrroughs himself, so in some ways it is more faithful to the original book. It is cheaply produced nonetheless. Bruce Bennett makes a fair Tarzan. It?s entertaining, but seems a bit amateur in it?s production values.
