Doc Savage is one of the biggest pulp characters that has never really been able to make the transition to live action. I think there was some low budget attempt featuring ex-Tarzan Ron Ely, but other than that filmmakers seem to have steered clear of the property. It's too bad, because I think that there is a great Indiana Jones type film to be be made with Doc Savage. Casting might be a challenge, as you would need a action star type that could also convincingly portray Doc's intellect.
