Frodo fall count

Frodo fall count Can't Post

I rewatched FoTR to be sure this was correct. Some falls are arguable or open to interpretation, so others' numbers may vary by a few, but I stand by mine. Cool
If there were 2 half-falls (arguable as to a fall or not), I counted them both as one fall. Ex: the two half-falls on the breaking Moria staircase.

FoTR: 17
TTT: 12
RoTK: 25

Total Frodo falls: 54 Laugh

One thing I noticed... [In reply to] Can't Post

The amount of times he gets stabbed, but doesn't die, is incredible.

Twice in FOTR and once in ROTK.

I'd actually always wondered about this, if vaguely. Thanks for posting!Laugh

But he's sturdy enough if he was able to get away unscathed.

Use the One Ring and have preservation of life! Side-effects include clumsiness! :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Yeah, PJ and crew did kinda overdo it with Frodo's falls and wounds, but it sorta makes the movies more entertaining!Smile

Aren't there lots of stories... [In reply to] Can't Post

...about Elijah W. being able to fall down a flight of stairs and then just get up and dust himself off without even a bruise?

Rain may fall and wind may blow
And many miles be still to go
But under a tall tree I will lie
And watch the clouds go sailing by.
