So glad to see you back, Mechtild!! And I'm overjoyed that you've chosen to screencap this wonderful scene - I will never understand how they could bring themselves to cut this from the theatrical version.

But then comes the head-turn. I can’t think of images from the three films in which Frodo looks more deer-like. His manner and features are as sensitively and delicately nuanced as a fawn’s, stepping into a clearing by itself for the first time.

There are so many moments throughout the trilogy where I always think "Why, oh why didn't they give him an Oscar?" -and this is certainly one of them - it brings tears to my eyes every single time. You have come up with the perfect description of Frodo here - the fawn stepping into a clearing by itself for the first time - absolutely spot-on:) He looks so vulnerable. And have you noticed the change in the music here? It turns into a most beautiful, heartbreaking melody. I have no problem with the Mordor question - I think it's rather sweet. Thank you so much for these lovely screencaps and the wonderful, descriptive text:)

Thanks for commenting, Not Alone. Do look at the comments of Chicklegs and Estelanui, who say excellent things in defense of the Mordor question.
