As told in "The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen", Aragorn in his twentieth year met Arwen for the first time in Rivendell, where he lived under Elrond's protection. Arwen, then over 2700 years old, had recently returned to her father's home after living for a while with her grandmother Lady Galadriel in Lórien. Aragorn fell in love with Arwen at first sight. Some thirty years later, the two were reunited in Lórien. Arwen reciprocated Aragorn's love, and on the mound of Cerin Amroth they committed themselves to marry one another. After the War of the Ring, Aragorn became king of Arnor and Gondor. Arwen arrived at Minas Tirith, and they were married. Her few appearances in the book suggest that Arwen is a minor character in The Lord of the Rings; but she serves as inspiration and motivation for Aragorn, who, as Elrond stipulated, must become King of both Arnor and Gondor before he could wed her. The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen relates that Arwen had a son, Eldarion, and at least two unnamed daughters by Aragorn. In F.A. 121, one year after Aragorn's death, at the age of 2901 she gave up her life at Cerin Amroth.
Gates of Argonath is the gate of kingdom Gondor, the fellowship of the ring divided into two groups and lost Boromir in the battle with hands of wihte wizard. the fate of ring only on the little hobbit.
Aragorn leads his remaining men to the Black Gate of Mordor, distracting Sauron and his forces and allowing Sam and Frodo to enter Mount Doom. As Sam carries the weakened Frodo up the volcano, Gollum reappears and attacks them but they manage to evade him. At the Crack of Doom, Frodo succumbs to the Ring's power, refusing to destroy it. Having followed them, Gollum attacks Frodo, biting his finger off and seizing the Ring for himself. An enraged Frodo attacks Gollum, and they both fall over the edge. At the last second, Frodo grabs onto the ledge, leaving Gollum to fall into the lava to his death, taking the Ring with him. As the Ring melts in the volcano, Sauron is destroyed and the land of Mordor collapses, taking down most of his forces.
I'll fill in the hairy feet later, but I figured I'd better upload now to be timely. Bilbo travels to Rivendell in the spring, and it's June when he reaches Elrond's house. Before he does, he and the dwarves are captured by hungry, marauding trolls. Gandalf comes to the rescue and after the trolls are petrified, Bilbo finds an old Elvish dagger (a sword to him) and he dubs it "Sting".
Rankin Bass produced their version of "The Hobbit" in 1977, a flawed, but somehow endearing TV special. The designs for the characters are often jaw-dropping in their complexity--check out all the contours and wrinkles in Bilbo's jacket alone. But like a lot of Rankin Bass, the designs proved too tough to animate with the proper life. Movements were stiff.
They made up with camera angles and special effects and some effective voice-casting. (Except for a bushel of all-too-familiar Hanna-Barbera players which kinda dragged it down)
As of June 6, 2014, Casey Kasem is still alive, but is described as seriously ailing and low. While Shaggy is his most popular cartoon voice, it isn't his only one and while thinking up a fitting tribute, I turned away from Saturday morning and looked first at doing a Peter Cottontail. While roaming in Rankin Bass land, I remembered he also spoke for Merry the Hobbit in "Return of the King" and voila, there was the character.
Remembering how loud and emotional Casey once was, I needed an anguished moment to sum it all up--and when I studied Théoden's death scene, I saw it.
Gollum swears at himself for forgetting where and when he had Sauron's Ring the last time he wore it. Little does Gollum know that The Ring has a will of its own and abandoned him.
"Where isss it? My BIRTHDAY PRESSENT?"
Rankin Bass' take on Gollum is far more animalistic than Peter Jackson's...but Prof Tolkien didn't give portrayers of Gollum much to go on. The 1977 version is a naked amphibian with Clark Gable ears, a tail and a scraggly mane. His myriad wrinkles are boggling and his lamp-bright eyes have no soul to them. Does we precioussss?
If you like to draw Gollum, get used to drawing knuckles.
Germanic performance artist "Brother" Theodore provided Gollum's voice in both "The Hobbit" and "Return of the King". He held nothing back, huffing and babbling his lines, making Gollum utterly deranged and creepy. The influence of The Ring failed to turn his former self (Smeagol) into a megalomaniac. Instead, it warped him into a cowardly hermit preying on whatever he could catch and eat in the grottoes underneath Goblin Town.
Only the lust to get The Ring back forces him to emerge from his lair. Elves and elf-made things are repellent to him.
