I like your comparisons.

I've long been genderswitch pairing Frodolijah with Judy Garland's Dorothy (and movie Frodo seems much more like movie Dorothy to me than book Frodo). I think it's the scared but determined and generous quest roles, the emotiveness (especially the pouts), and the big shiny eyes. (-:

Ha ha! Your post makes me laugh. Maybe the Wizard of Oz comparisons are prompted by the Minas Morgul scene. When they showed Gollum, Frodo and Sam peeping over the rock wall watching the Orcs emerge from the citadel, I kept thinking of Dorothy and her friends doing the same thing, while the Wicked Witch of West's guards marched out singing "Yo-ee-oh! Eee-oh-oh!"

But big shiny eyes, emotiveness, and determined and generous quest roles *are* something the characters have in common. Plus, they're supposed to represent "everyman" (or "every child") on their quests, even if they are actually quite unique. Thanks for commenting, Lavendertook!
