Towards the end of this segment there is this exchange:
Why did Galadriel come over to Middle Earth from Valinor?
She, I think, was one of the people chosen to watch over Middle Earth along with Gandalf and Elrond.
That's an excellent answer, I hate to say it's not true.
She is one of the family of Feanor who crafted the three Silmarils and when the elves took the blood oath to get the Silmarils back from Morgoth, she came to take the Sil- you got it partially right - she came to fight Morgoth.
She was one of the ring bearers -
She was one of the ring bearers - which ring?
Made for the elven kings!
(They shake hands.)
Of course Colbert knew the exact answer - Galandriel's ring was Nenya, the Ring of Water or the Ring of Adamant.
It makes me a little nostalgic for my ex-boyfriend John, whose knowledge of The Lord of the Rings was exceeded only by his knowledge of every single thing that ever happened during World War II.
We worked together briefly and one of our co-workers (this was before the Ring movies came out) wanted to know how tall hobbits were - John responded: "which breed - Harfoot, Stoor or Fallohides?"
