THE LORD OF THE RINGS (1978)
1978, The Saul Zaentz Co., 132 min, USA, Dir: Ralph Bakshi

Originally a topic of griping among hard-core Tolkien fans, Bakshi’s bold, hallucinogenic interpretation of hobbits and the journey they undertake to save Middle-earth was later hailed by Peter Jackson as one of his inspirations for the live-action trilogy.
