"After 30 years, a TV adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings long thought lost has resurfaced. The 1991 Soviet television adaptation has been uploaded to YouTube in two one-hour videos."


And here's the youtube link

And then there's The Hobbit

I think that if given the choice J R. R. Tolkien would prefer the Peter Jackson films. :)

He was very protective of his property. My Ballentine copy had a note by him in the front that those with respect to living authors (at least) would only purchase that edition (my college library had a different edition!). I also understand that he long forbade fanfic, and also that Gary Gygax had trouble getting D&D out because of him.
