Fireside scene Pt. 3: "Take it!"

I thought I may as well do the second set before I go out for the day....

What the heck? One can't hide such screencaps under a bushel.

This set makes two distinct sequences. The first four are intensely painterly portraits, very dramatic, I think. The first image is the one I used for the face in Joseph and Potiphar's Wife.

Frodo's expression in the second frame melts my soul. And not just my soul. Heavens, what a look. *brow beads with perspiration*

The longer sequence below is from the moment when Frodo, alarmed, tries to insist that Gandalf take the Ring instead of he. I love this series for its actorly beauty. The transition of emotions on his face in this frames is stunningly vivid. *sigh* I never tire of admiring them....

Frodo is supposed to be saying, "Then it cannot stay in the Shire," and, "Take it, Gandalf, take it!" But I confess that when I look at these frames out of context I imagine Frodo saying something like this:

"What do you mean you're 'busy'? You're 'not in the mood'? Get up from that chair, and get in my bed, NOW. Well????"

"Oh, all right. If you insist...."
