After such a long time gap after Logopolis, I hadn't seen Tom in anything other than the "Frankenstein". I had heard about the D&D film and rented it expressly to see him about 10 years ago. They should have used more of him somehow. That short span of a few minutes on screen, a smile at all the fun and good feelings I remembered of him came flooding back.

And that's what got me poking around the 'net looking him up again and tumbled into all this :lol:

I read also about his being considered for Gandalf but it not working out. Didn't Tom have other obligations at that time to fulfill (can't have breech of contract - wouldn't work again!)?

Pattie Anne, you really are shorting yourself of a true rendition of the LOTR story by not viewing the movie.
And if Tom were available for the Hobbit, I would hope it would be for a good part...perhaps Gandalf would be feasible this time to be considered. If they can use Michael Gambone to replace the late Richard Harris in the Potter movies, the powers that be should certainly consider Tom Baker.

Dear Gold Usher -

My life is very full and complete without the aforementioned series in it. Therefore I will continue my Pout and Protest for TOM's sake.

:evil:

Love,
pattie anne

PS; But I did consider your proposal for oh, about, all of three seconds!

p a

Ladies ... ladies ... ladies ... just how on earth are we going to settle this? :? Perhaps it will require the wisdom of Tom himself, to figure out this conundrum. :o Who knows! ;)

Best,
Dirk :ugeek:

Three second consideration on Pattie Anne's part is a chip off the iceberg....

It used to be only a nanosecond ..enough to say NO!
So there might be the tiniest crack showing.

Believe me, her devotion is to be admired.

It's funny though how you read the books and envision the scenery as the characters move through. Sometimes the movie agreed with mine -- sometimes not.

The first time I ever read LOTR I was very sick with a fever, I couldnt get out of bed and someone borrowed it from the library for me. In my feverish state I didin't remember much of it, and probably only read bits and peices between sleep. But the fever itself had me hallucinating and combine that with what I did take in of the story no movie could compare!! I had dreams of hobbits on mountains for days. But the movie was great, it could have had better actors in some roles ;) but it is one of my favourites.
