Soothe that bad Soviet LOTR movie vibe with some absolutely charming Soviet-era Hobbit illustrations by Mikhail Belomlinsky!



Soviets may have made the most expensive movie ever. Assuming it was filmed in the west obviously it would of cost less.

Accounts vary but thousands (10-100k) of extras in Napoleonic dress reenacting 1812.

Looks like this one was raid the local theatre for costumes.

I'd just like to note that not only did the Beatles attempt to secure the rights to make their own Lord of the Rings movie, but Lennon (allegedly) wanted Stanley Kubrick to direct. So however strange this Russian thing is it's still not the strangest LotR adaptation someone has attempted to make.
