NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Shelob’s Lair Pt. 7 ~ Frodo attacked by Gollum (#7 of 9).


I already said in the last post how good I think Elijah Wood is in the scene, first goaded, then attacked by Gollum. Collapse )
As for the scene itself, the more I look at it the more I think the screenwriters’ based the scene not on the fight in the Shelob’s Lair chapter, but the one in Mount Doom. I think they used the “transfiguration” scene I was referring to in the last post, in which Gollum attacks Frodo, who is being carried by Sam. Frodo falls off, and he and Gollum struggle. Collapse )
