This is one of the most beautifully filmed scenes in the movie, I think. Thank you for the gorgeous images, Mechling.

The old hobbit's wonder begets wonder anew, and the legacy continues.

This is so true. I remember watching my father’s expression of delight over the family-gifts, which had been passed down from generation to generation, that my sister and I would one day pass on to the next generation.

You wrote: She [Jan-u-wine] has such a feel for Frodo from the inside.

Jan’s poetry is truly wonderful.

Yes, it is beautifully filmed. I'm sure you've see the big production stills of Frodo and Bilbo in the opening of this scene. I wish I had saved a copy for my files. The camera is further back and you can see the full setting more clearly. It's so exquisitely designed, executed and lit.

I love it that your father got so much pleasure passing on the family treasures. It's lucky for him, too, that he had children who appreciated receiving them. Not all children do; or perhaps you didn't then, but came to appreciate them later. I've found I do.
