The Soviet Adaption of The Lord of the Rings

In 1991 the Soviet Union produced and aired their take on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Apparently after airing on Leningrad Television this production was “lost” and just recently rediscovered in 2021. Tolkien fans will be happy to see that Tom Bombadil makes an appearance who was left out of the Peter Jackson version. No, this is not a joke and the music and effects are exactly what you think and I think this might have actually contributed to the fall of the USSR later in the year. Enjoy and you are welcome.
