Beatles wanted to do Lord of the Rings film in 1960s

John Lennon wanted to play the grasping, thieving creature Gollum... Paul McCartney was to play the hero Frodo... George Harrison was to play the wise wizard Gandalf...Ringo Starr was to play Frodo's devoted sidekick Sam

The Beatles' idea fell flat when author J.R.R. Tolkien rejected the plan.
