Points for being a very big (if sometimes terrifying) part of my childhood. More points for casting John Huston as Gandalf and Otto Preminger as the Elf King...Golum, here, easily trumps Jackson's. In fact, this, honestly beats any Tolkien adaptation yet made, in my opinion.
Love thinking about this movie which I can remember watching on tv as a child. Or am I thinking of the movie about the rabbits, which movie is that. What is that called. Watership Down. Excellent. Such an impression such a mark left on me. I was immediatley immersed in the life of all creatures great and small. It stays with me to this day
