    This 1934 faux-documentary is interesting as a period piece. A woman travels with her dad, the captain of a schooner, and two crew mates. There is a "risque" scene of Joan Lowell, the actress and purported adventurer, bathing on the ship. We see her bare back!She finds a log book and map on an old abandoned ship, supposedly Spanigh, yet the log seems in English.For some reason, the actors playing the Guatemalan natives are not identified. Go figure.She lies to her host(s). The queen takes her to a hidden Mayan city of ruins. Our hero and her companion plan to find the "square emerald" noted in the old log and map, While her companion occupies the queen's attention, she takes a pick axe to the staue/shrine, destroying it, but finds no emerald. Captured, she is tied up to be burned alive.The companion somehow frees her and again, somehow, they escape. Eventually they hop aboard the motorized raft they had built with the natives help to go up river. But the engine dies. Instead of using the gasoline on board to ttry and restart it, she decides to pour it in the water and set it on fire to deter the pursuing natives, but the fire encircles them.So she makes a hole in the raft and they sneak out by swimming beneath the fire and getting t their ship and escaping.A movie like this would never be made today. Wrecking ancient idols, destroying an historic site, planning to rob the natives of their precious emerald. Imagine that today.The ridiculous natives, so easy to fool. An interesting movie, badly acted. A fake story claimed to be true.Cultural appropriation, when we were great again, I guess.
