I scored a lot of the picture to either line drawings or the live-action footage. It was extraordinary! I was on the set one day to see Ralph, and I was surrounded by 150 midgets. I felt like Gulliver. They were all dressed in costume and I thought, "My God! Why didn't he shoot it live with those people?" They looked wonderful. I really don't think the animation worked. Frodo was just awful, like some strange character drawn and pasted on the walls. He had no shadow!
[The script] was marvelous. It was simple, but the film came out very confusing, not because of the subplots, but because Ralph Bakshi didn't have any story sense. All he was interested in was the violence. That's the problem with all his films.
