16 The Ring In The Fire­place

The Lord Of The Rings: The Fel­low­ship OF The Ring

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Greatest middle-earth moments -

With so many epic, sweep­ing events to choose from in th­ese films, it’s easy to over­look an iconic yet small mo­ment such as this one. Gan­dalf throws the Ring into Frodo’s fire­place as the baf­fled Hob­bit looks on, then waits anx­iously to see if any­thing will hap­pen – and, just when you think it’s all been a false alarm, those fore­bod­ing words ap­pear on the gold band. A swirl of flames, a brood­ing whis­per on the sound­track and sud­denly evil has come to Bag End... and a quest be­gins.
