J.R.R. Tolkien’s true vision, if you ask me.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the glitz and glamour of the recent oscar-winning remakes, but some of us still remember the original version back before they could afford to use cgi or breed their own dragons just for the close up shots. This film was from a simpler day in the art of cinema, but still just as powerful, if not more so, than one of the most acclaimed modern remakes ever. So, without further ado, via youtube, I present Humphrey Bogart in the 1944 original, “The Lord of the Rings.”
