The Lion Man is a 1936 American film very loosely based on The Lad and the Lion by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and the 1917 silent movie of the same title. It was directed by John P. McCarthy and produced by Arthur Alexander and Max Alexander. The film stars Jon Hall then appearing under his real name Charles Locher and Kathleen Burke who had recently co-starred in The Lives of a Bengal Lancer. The Lion Man was re-released as a "Tarzan Vs the Lion Man" double feature in the late 1940s.
