Tarzan, because of the low cost and easy access to Earth animals from Africa, has been made into films every generation since his first publication, the first in 1918, starring Elmo Lincoln as Tarzan. Jump to the end for the wikipedia link on the media history of this jungle lord.
1930′s Early attempts At a John Carter film:The first adaptation of, Edgar Rice Burroughs, John Carter of Mars series began in 1931 with Looney Tunes director Bob Clampett. Clampett approached Edgar Rice Burroughs with the idea of adapting A Princess of Mars into a feature-length animated film. Burroughs was receptive to the idea, due to the obvious limitations a live action film might have. So work began on a six minute proof of concept, which finally completed in 1936. -Youtube Description

Amazon #2 in Movies/History & Criticism
"A fair, factual, and enlightening assessment of what went wrong . . . the best corporate history I've read since Disney War." Daniel Butcher, Between Disney.
"A winning book . . . . I have no reservations in recommending John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood. Even if you only remotely hold an interest in the film or the moviemaking method, do yourself a favor and purchase this book. I cannot remember an instance when I read 350 pages of anything in 24 hours, but my level of captivation in how methodically and interestingly the content was presented should substantiate why John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood is a must-read. Grade A." Brett Nachman, Geeks of Doom.
"A must read for every fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs and John Carter and every film buff intrigued by the 'inside baseball' aspects of modern Hollywood." Richard A. Lupoff, Author of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Master of Adventure
