The Hobbit. Dirs. Jules Bass and Arthur Rankin, Jr. Perf. Orson Bean, John Huston, et al. Rankin/Bass, 1977. DVD.

This film from Rankin-Bass is available on YouTube in six parts. Just like our texts, we will refer to this animation, an adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, or There and Back Again (1937), frequently in class. It may be that you will choose to write a paper on this work before the course is finished.
