Jackson's certainly won't be the last, since every classic spurs many films; look at how many versions have been created of Dickens novels alone, or mythology like Hercules, history like Sparacus, or legends like Robin Hood.

Also, the budget and technology was simply not there.
I am rather surprised no one was put off Tolkien for a lifetime by Bakshi's attempt and the Rankin Bass RotK.
And his fascination for detail and all the hardwork as seen in the EEs clearly bears the mark of something similar to Tolkien's niggling.
Bakshi's was a butchering of everything Tolkien.
