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. 3: The Devil’s Noose
Unharmed, the Martling party find themselves trapped in the now-sealed passageway, and discover Tarzan has apparently fallen through a hole in the tunnel floor into a watery pit filled with alligators. Tarzan miraculously eludes the reptiles and surfaces in a nearby river, where he meets Ula and N’Kima on shore. N’Kima informs Tarzan he has heard the others calling for help from the sealed tunnel, and Tarzan, Ula and her men dig them out. Meanwhile, Raglan discvers he’s lost the notebook, caches the Goddess in a handy jungle shack, and backtracks himself to find it. He finds Tarzan, d’Arnot, the Martling party, and Ula and her men encamped for the night, and sees Martling with the codebook. When Martling goes for an evening stroll, Raglan jumps him and regains the book. Ula finds the recovering Martling and goes after Raglan. When she reaches the shack, Raglan knocks her out, sets fire to the shack and leaves with the Goddess. Tarzan, having also found Martling and learned what happened, is now on the trail and comes upon the burning shack. Hurrying to rescue Ula, he accidentally steps in a native animal trap and is whipped into the air by a noose, feet first!
description="The devil's noose"
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.
