They didn't get the rights to that one. They just made a second rate knockoff.

They've always made movies that were based on other IP, they just didn't call it IP. Of the ones I listed, It Happened One Night, The Maltese Falcon, Arsenic and Old Lace, The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Thin Man were all based on short stories, novels, or plays that were already popular at the time.

Hollywood has just taken it to extremes in the last two decades.
They've gone from having a strong preference for established works, to a slavish devotion to them.

one thing about the passage of time is that people remember citizen kane and do not remember, e.g. 51 movies from the same franchise coming out in 7 years around the same time https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Three_Mesquiteers

You are right I do not remember those. Wait a minute, how old are you, exactly? Stand in front of this mirror for a second.

Pretty much.

I'm honestly amazed that Christopher Nolan can keep getting original stuff done.

At this point I would almost say that Nolan, Tarantino, Del Toro etc are themselves established works
