Wonderful mini essay, Mechtils! Reading and looking at your post it’s a delight!

I agree with you: the movie hardly depicts physical closeness between Frodo and Sam, but their ‘closeness’ is often shows by means of looks and physical positions.
As you pointed out, in this part of the world two men can perhaps touch each other, but provided that emotions are not mixed up.

There is no film scene of the two hobbits spooned up together, something Sam does for his master when Frodo is freezing, trying to sleep in Mordor.

I remembered the scene before the Forbidden Pool in TTT where Frodo and Sam are sleeping close, but they don’t touch each other.

That's right, Estelanui. They sleep close, but not touching, in the Emyn Muil, too. I forgot about the Ithilien scene.

But even in the book, it's shown as a decision on Sam's part to spoon up behind Frodo when Frodo is shivering on the ground in Mordor. If it were something Sam did routinely, surely it would not have been mentioned.
