The Complete (Screen) Tom Bombadil: 1971-1993
With the rediscovery of the lost Soviet Lord of the Rings, the time has come for the important things in life.
Specifically, compiling the Tom Bombadil scenes from the three known screen adaptations that feature him:
This is a collection of scenes from:
– Sagan om Ringen (1971: Sweden)
– Khraniteli (1991: USSR)
– Hobitit (1993: Finland)
Interestingly, the Soviets are the only ones to include Goldberry, whereas the Finns are the only ones to include the barrow blades. The Swedes are the only ones with Gildor and Glorfindel, albeit that is outside the scope of this Bombadil-focused video.
Neither Ralph Bakshi (1978) nor Peter Jackson (2001) include Tom, of course. Which means that Tom has never appeared on-screen in a visual English-language Tolkien adaptation.
