It pretty much finishes at Helm's Deep. Hence my remark about it would be nice to see it completed.
I've read that this was because Bakshi ran out of money, and was also forced to kind of half-conclude it because United Artists thought audiences wouldn't want to see a story spread out over two movies.
On a Fortean note: I always heard that JRRT and his son Michael shared the wave dream that inspired the story of Númenor. In fact, he believed it might have been some kind of ancestral memory of the destruction of Atlantis, since he found out about the shared dream from his son without ever talking about it. This is why I don't like it when I read blanket assumptions like "It's impossible to share dreams."
