Edgar Rice Burroughs [1875-1950] was an American writer most well-known for his adventure and science fiction novels. Burroughs best known works are the Tarzan novels, the tales of Mars adventurer John Carter, and the stories of Pellucidar.
Tarzan and the Lion Man is the seventeenth in the series relating the tales of Tarzan, Lord Greystoke. It was first published as a serial in Liberty magazine from November 1933 through January 1934. Tarzan and his lion companion Jad-bal-ja discover a mad scientist in a city of talking gorillas. A Hollywood film crew arrives to shoot a Tarzan movie in Africa with an actor who is an exact double of Tarzan but who has no courage or determination. Tarzan, using his English name, John Clayton, visits Hollywood and finds himself in a screen test for a role in a Tarzan movie. The director deems him unsuitable for the lead role because he is not the type.
