Gollum The Russian HobbitWas Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey too long and you don’t know how you will ever sit through two more films like that? Well, if so, you’re in luck. The Russians made a film of The Hobbit back in 1985 and it clocks in at a mere 72 minutes. What?!?! They beat us to it???

While the production value is a little low (OK, a lot low) ¬†it’s not bad considering this was during the height of the cold war. The style reminds me a bit of Mary Martin’s Peter Pan.

BTW, This is totally for real. I’d say enjoy, but I really, really can’t. Oh yeah, it’s not in english but you should¬†check it out anyway.
