I remember being in the hospital watching this on a VCR and getting a visit from David Caradine and his then wife. We talked about the movie and he told me about how Bakshi ran out of money and there was no part 2 (the case from Blockbuster said part 1). David Caradine looked like a homeless person with his hair all wild and very neat Hawaiian shirt (the guy who set up the meet and greets for the hospital thought he was a patient). My dad has a picture of me and David Caradine and his wife somewhere at his house. So anytime I think of this movie and it's wired as hell rotoscoping my mind wanders back to when David Caradines' wife gave me her Canadian Beaver.

That's my Ralph Bakshis LotR story, thanks for reading.

sam does not trust this iron-thewed stranger that calls himself strider. the others do, though, and the iron-thewed stranger immediately amends his name to aragorn, son of arathorn, and declares himself the hobbits' friend and protector. the music affirms this as a positive development, and so i am at ease

so it is late at night in the town of bree, when the ringwraiths come in on their reasonably healthy-looking shadow horses, and sneak unto the motel room where the hobbits lie sleeping. it's a beautifully done sequence

The ringwraiths are so cool and creepy in this. And this is another one of those scenes, you'd swear was in the book, but no, it's all Bakshi.

the ringthings materialise in the hobbits' motel room and really get intense about stabbing them to death. they absolutely just satanically murder these hobbits

















oh gently caress! they've been had! the hobbits are gone! devastated, the ringwraiths flock together and start having a kind of sensuous, intimate little rave while screeching



i am uncertain what the following frames depict but i believe it to be some sort of golden helmet being rotated into place, this is genuinely all i have to go on





meanwhile the hobbits sleep apparently quite undisturbed by all that has happened, lovingly guarded by shanks radley son of bradley or whatever the hell

in the sort of unexpected display of male tenderness in which this film is surprisingly rich, frolicsome summery music plays as frodo wakes up, looks at aragon like this



and then wordlessly goes back to sleep. end scene

the ringwraiths flounce out leaving behind an absolutely shredded motel room





fun fact, bakshi wanted to score the movie with led zeppelin but couldn't get the rights, so it's done with a cheesy sword'n'sandals fauxchestral thing cobbled together at the last minute and hated by everybody involved. but it was meant to be the zep. i consider robert plant a collaborator, though he wasn't aware of it at the time

after a wild night of jigging at the inn of the prancing rotoscope, the hobbits return to their hotel room to find it already occupied by an intensely dressed stranger





Strider was originally a Hobbit named Trotter who wore clogs that made "clitter-clap" sound. It's a crime he was turned into a man.

aragorn's a man of action. the ringwraiths came and frodo was jonesing for the ring, aragorn told him not to but he just could not stay away from that ring and long story short he got stabbed









there's a lot going on in the background of ringspace, i like it
