During the filming of The Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson experimented with Frodo as a Gollum-like creature. These images of Elijah Wood in test makeup comes from a deleted scene, which was intended to showcase Frodo meeting the same fate as Smeagol, after spending too much time with “the one ring”. The scene was intended to occur when Frodo is freaking out against Faramir. As seen in the movie, Frodo struggled with the addictive powers of evil, who managed to escape its grasp only with the help of Sam.
