Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
In Peter Jackson's Fellowship of the Ring film, the only characters who speak, other than Elrond himself, are mostly Gandalf, Aragorn, Boromir, Gimli and Legolas. Other members of Elrond's household like Erestor, Figwit and Glorfindel are omitted. There are no signs of talking about the current War and of Gollum's escape in Mirkwood. In addition to this, it was not only Sam who was eavesdropping, but also Merry and Pippin.
