You know...I do really think you're right. It had never occurred to me how close that area where Frodo and Sam rested was to where the torture of Gollum was taking place...Frodo would never have allowed that to happen. He would have tried his best to prevent it or risk getting beaten himself...

Pretty Frodo!

I hadn't realised they were that close (Faramir with Gollum, and Frodo and Sam with the barrels) either, until I screencapped the scene.

But you know, Claudia, it's only really terrible in the EE. How I wish they had never included it!!!

In the theatrical, Frodo and Sam would have heard Gollum screaming and some scuffling sounds, since even in the TE they do throw him down on the floor. But there's no kicking, punching, or hurling him into the rock wall. Gollum screams, Sam and Frodo needn't have assumed Faramir and his men were doing anything truly awful to him. Think how Gollum had screamed in the Emyn Muil, with only the loose Elven rope around his neck. But in the EE scene, there'd be the sounds of thud and crack as boots and fists ploughed into him, not to mention Gollum's weeping, not just screaming. That Gollum was being beaten up would be unmistakable.
