**Bakshi LOTR Discussion Sign-Up (First Half)** Can't Post

I have the schedule for the first half of the discussion of the Ralph Bakshi LOTR below. I've keyed it to chapters in the DVD (I know it has been reissued, so hopefully they are about the same in the newer version) and added timestamps and chapter names for those who have the VHS. PM me for help finding the starting place.

The parameters of the discussion can be pretty loose. There are screen captures floating around the net, and I could help make some if you want some--PM me. Each leader can decide how to set up the discussion, and how much to post. I thought doing it Tues and Thurs, but if you want to do 3 or more posts, that is entirely up to you and how how divide up the section during your week. You can compare it to the book, to comparable scenes in the Jackson films, or look at it on its own.

I'll post the first half of the movie (up through the Council of Elrond and the formation of the Fellowship) and then ask for volunteers for the second half in April. I've taken the first part, the Prologue (which Jackson used for his version) and the Long-Expected Party scenes. Please indicate below if you want to lead a discussion, and you can PM me if you have questions. I am going to be out some today, but will get back to you this weekend.

Here is an interview with Peter S. Beagle (his complaints against Saul Zaentz and Ralph Bakshi have been posted around the internet; he received $5,000 to rewrite the original Chris Conkling script, but has not received any additional royalties,etc.):

I'd help if I knew about Bakshi's Lord of the Rings... [In reply to] Can't Post

but I never heard, let alone seen it...


Elven by name, Hobbit by nature

'Road lead ever on and on
down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
down from where all began' -FOTR-

and through all the world has changed
the ages come and go with time
and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
over the sea...

Unless, of course, someone else really had their heart set on that chapter. How hard can it be, right?
