will we ever get tatty,maggot,old man willow, bombadil, merry arriving on a cart? Can't Post

One of my favourite parts of the books is the section from bagend to bree.

remember only pip sam and frodo encountered the black rider on the path? the hide out at tattys (the 10th member of the fellowship?) maggot not being afraid of the black rider? merry in the fog? old forest?

i adore this section of the books, seems to take an age to get to bree, and it reminds me of lazy summer walks through the country..

do you think well ever see these parts dramatised?

Tatty [In reply to] Can't Post

Do you mean Fatty? As in Fredegar Fatty Bolger?
I would've liked to have seen him and the others. Unfortunately I think Bomby's got it right. We might never
see them dramatized.
I at least would've liked to see Fatty, since he is, kind of the tenth member. Wasn' t he supposed to go with them, but decided to stay because they (Merry, Pippin and Frodo) needed someone in Crickhollow?

yeah i meant fatty [In reply to] Can't Post

ha for some reason i have tatty in my head when i think of bolger, must be from something else!

yeah he is a real hero, well he doesnt go on the journey becuase he was afraid of the old forest, but decided instead to fool the blackriders into thinking frodo was living in the new house, very brave, imagine if he had gone with them!

he is one of the gang , him frodo sam merry and pip. i think pip marries his sister!

Between my own imagination and the Mind's Eye radio dramatization... [In reply to] Can't Post

I can very well imagine what it would be like to cover the conspiracy and the flight to Bree as Tolkien related it. What I miss most from these sequences being left out of Jackson's version is the elaborate preparations that Frodo and his companions made as well as their encounter with the Barrow-wight. Unfortunately, the stop-over at Bombadil's house would have probably dragged on film. Of course, if Bombadil is skipped then we need an alternate ending to the Barrow-downs sequence (perhaps an alternate introduction of Strider as the one who rescues the hobbits from the wight).

book 1 film 1 [In reply to] Can't Post

if book 1 of fotr was made into a film ,that would be epic! you could really get into the workings of hobbit culture and the plan frodo and the gang make to decieve everyoneof his 'retirement'

bombadil would be perfect for a rest in the film, and we would finnaly get to see merry get his barrowblade which eventually disables the witch king!

what a great ending and cliff hanger aswell!!

the whole of book 1 is one big chase! against the odds!

Ah, the Mind's Eye version! [In reply to] Can't Post

The Jolly Green giant voice for Treebeard notwithstanding, amongst other things, it does have its moments! I agree it does give you a window on how some of the scenes Jackson omitted could have been dramatized.
