Doc Smith? I'd pay to see a decent Lensman film.

You'd have to edit it pretty mercilessly to take all the racism, sexism and American Exceptionalism out.. (I read those books avidly as a 10-12 year old - tried to re-read them a year or so back and couldn't get past all the flaws that I hadn't seen the first time round..)

A better candidate might be Anne McCafferys Pern dragonrider series. Sci-fi with some fantasy tropes but well written and not suffering from the same flaws as the teen-aimed dragon stuff now.
