A mysterious, jewel-covered statue called “The Green Goddess” is as dangerous as it is valuable. It contains an ancient formula for a powerful super-explosive that, in unscrupulous hands, could destroy the world.
The New Adventures of Tarzan
Ep. 2: Crossed Trails
Madly in love with Tarzan, Queen Maya stays her hand. Suddenly, the natives notice Raglan lowering a noose through the temple’s chimney-hole from above, snagging the Green Goddess and hauling it away. D’Arnot frees Tarzan from the altar, and the apeman rescues the Martling party, who were about to be thrown into a pit of alligators. In the ensuing confusion, they escape aboveground, where George rescues them with a machine gun he’s been carrying concealed in a black case. Raglan escapes with the Goddess, but drops the codebook, unawares. George finds it and gives it to Martling for safekeeping. Ula, en route to the Lost City with her bearers, spots the fleeing Raglan and starts to follow, but is attacked by a panther. Tarzan rescues her, introduces her to Martling, explains their respective missions to each other, and gets them to agree to join forces. Without Ula, the others pursue Raglan, who has preceded them through an underground passage and set a dynamite trap. Unawares, the others follow into the passage, stumble over the trip-wire, and there is a terrific explosion.
In the African jungles, Tarzan kills a lion and saves the life of a demented Frenchman, who tells him that D’Arnot, Tarzan’s best friend is lost in the wilds of Guatemala.
Rushing to D’Arnot’s aid aboard the S.S. Wangai, Tarzan accidentally meets MAJOR MARLING, an archaelogolist leading an expedition to the Guatemalan jungles in the hope of locating the famous GREEN GODDESS – a priceless Mayan relic containing a fortune in gems. He casually becomes a part of a group including ALICE MARTLING, Martling’s daughter, GORDON HAMILTON, her fiance, and GEORGE, an admirer of the Ape-Man, who has stowed aboard with Nkima, Tarzan’s pet chimpanzee. ULA VALE, a mysterious woman, and RAGLAN, a racally explorer, trailing Martling to get posession of the document, dircting the expedition to the Goddess, are also passengers.
Learning that Martling has mailed the document to someone in Guatemala, the adventurers attack him in order to learn its whereabouts, but flee empty-handed when Tarzan comes to the rescue.
In Guatemala City, while Martling and Tarzan prepare for their expedition, Raglan gains possession of the document, escapes with it and starts for the jungle. They pursue him. However, Raglan, arriving at the point designated in the document, unearths the entrance to the secret underground passage leading to the lost City and the Green Goddess.
Tarzan’s party arrive and enter the Lost City, only to be seized by monster servers of QUEEN MAYA, in whose court they find D’Arnot a prisoner and behold the GREEN GODDESS. Maya declares all must die save Tarzan, who may remain as her consort. Tarzan, refusing, is strapped to the altar and Maya plunges her dagger toward his heart.
