According to the Fellowship commentary track by Jackson and the writers, the time gap you refer to was eliminated.
Thanks. I couldn't remember any specific references to the time gap. It's been quite a while since I last watched FOTR, let alone listened to any of the commentaries.
No problem. I remember specifically one of the female writers saying something to the effect that, because of momentum, they couldn't honor the time gap. They found other ways to honor Tolkien to the letter in such details as costume design, but with the momentum needed to move a feature film forward, they had to take liberties in the narrative here and there.
