The Return of the King (TV Movie 1980) Poster

(1980 TV Movie)

William Conrad: Lord Denethor



  • Gandalf : You cannot do this!

    Lord Denethor : Nay, nay, soon all shall be burned. The West has failed, it shall go up in a great fire and all shall be in it. Ash, ash and smoke blown away on the wind!

    Gandalf : All shall not be ended! Théoden's forces are on their way!

    Lord Denethor : [laughs]  Ride and despair! Ride and despair... didst thou think that the eyes of the White Tower were blind? I have looked inside my palantír.

    Peregrin 'Pippin' Took : What is that?

    Gandalf : A palantír. The stuff of wizards. A crystal ball to see the future.

    Lord Denethor : I have seen more than thou knowest Grey Fool! Thy hope is but ignorance! Even with the forces of Théoden there is no hope. Oh go forth and fight in vanity... for a little space you may triumph on the field for a day... but against the dark power than now rises there can be no victory!
