After looking at all their available scripts he chose to do a film adaptation of novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs' iconic character Tarzan, a man, raised by an unknown species of great apes in the jungle.

Forest Park (Springfield, Massachusetts)

Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts, is one of the largest urban, municipal parks in the United States, covering 735 acres of land overlooking the Connecticut River. Designed by the renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Forest Park features a zoo, aquatic gardens, outdoor amphitheater, in addition to typical Olmsted design elements like winding wooded trails, surprising, expansive views; the site of America's first public, municipal swimming pool during the holiday months Forest Park hosts a popular high-tech lighting display, known as Bright Nights. In 1884, Springfielder Orick H. Greenleaf offered 65 acres for the establishment of a park to be named Forest Park. Shortly after 178 acres were donated by wealthy philanthropist Everett Hosmer Barney. Barney made his fortune as a Civil War arms producer and as a businessman, inventing clamp-on ice skates and rollerskates. In 1890 Barney built an elaborate, turreted ​2 1⁄2-story Victorian mansion on a hill at the west end of his estate, which featured a spectacular view of the Connecticut River and Metro Center Springfield.

The mansion's elaborate carriage house still stands, today serving as a restaurant and banquet hall in Forest Park. To create the parcel of land on which Forest Park was built and Barney convinced several of their wealthy friends and neighbors to donate much of the remaining land that would make-up the 735-acre Forest Park, they both became members of the Board of Park Commissioners, which listed John Olmsted. At the time, much of this land was located in the neighboring suburb of Longmeadow, Ultimately, Longmeadow ceded complete control of Forest Park to the City of Springfield. In October 2017, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker announced that the state would assume the $3 million costs to repair a culvert at the main entrance of the park; the Barney Mansion was used for Forest Park events until the mid-1950s, when about 50 acres of the park, including 15 acres of the former Barney estate, were taken to construct the Springfield/Longmeadow sections of Interstate 91. Barney's house stood atop the hill at the northwest corner of the park, the highway construction may have threatened its foundations.

The construction of I-91 severed the Forest Park's connection to the Connecticut River. The Barney Mansion's stained glass windows were moved to a house in Palmer, Massachusetts where the demolition contractor lived at the time; the mausoleum of Barney's son and a carriage house still survive from the estate, along with many remnants of an extensive arboretum and water gardens planted by Barney around 1900. The developer of the Forest Park neighborhood continued this theme by planting many interesting specimen trees around Magnolia Terrace; this historic neighborhood with many fine examples of Victorian houses abuts the park on the north, while a small enclave of Springfield's stately brick colonial homes and the town of Longmeadow, Massachusetts borders the park to the south. Among the Forest Park's notable year-round attractions are the Forest Park Zoo, which features large cats, birds, a number of other "exotic and indigenous animals"; the ruggedly contoured valley of Pecousic Brook occupies more than half of the south side of the Forest Park.

This area has been left Naturalist in style, although it features many walking trails and a few elegant bridges. It is home to many species of birds and wildlife; the statue at the Route 5 entrance to Forest Park was created by Peter Wolf Toth and is part of the Trail of the Whispering Giants. The statue represents Omiskanoagwiak. A statue of a golden retriever, Stone Dog II stands between the park's largest playground and the zoo; the statue is a near replica of an older statue, which went missing from the park in 1987. The original Stone Dog dates back to the late 19th century. Since 1970, the Environmental Center for Our Schools takes all Springfield public school students in grades four through seven on a two-day environmental learning outing in Forest Park; the headquarters of this organization is located in Forest Park. During Summer, Camp STAR/Angelina is an inclusive camp for children of all abilities, ages 3 to 22 years old; some of the special needs populations the camp has worked with include: developmental delays, ADD/ADHD, emotional problems, learning disabilities, visual and hearing impairments.
