BURROUGHS-TARZAN ENTERPRISES

 

In 1934, Ashton Dearholt after several attempts to attract Edgar Rice Burroughs into a deal, finally presented a preposal to form a company named Burroughs-Tarzan Enterprises. This company was suppose to produce several of Burroughs books starting with a serial on Tarzan.

Burroughs-Tarzan Enterprises was set up with Hollywood offices at 8476 Sunset Boulevard, and New York offices at 1270 6th Avenue.

With Dearholt (Vice-President in Charge of Production), George W. Stout (President), and ben S. Cohen (Vice-President) owning sixty percent of the stock and Burroughs the remaining forty percent.

The first production of the new company was in 1934 and was entitled "The New Adventures of Tarzan". It starred Herman Brix (who later changed his name to Bruce Bennett), was filmed almost entirely in Guatemala, and was released in 1935 as a 12 chapter serial and as a ten-reel feature version.

The company released a few other films in 1935 and '36 and in 1937 released Tarzan and the Green Goddess.

They closed their doors in 1938 due to a tremendous amount of debt.
