That's not a reference I recall, but it's certainly a singular occurrence in the books that a mortal Man was strong enough in will to resist the most powerful incarnate being in Middle-earth. It's a shame he couldn't keep up that level of defiance after Morgoth released him. Even knowing that Morgoth had an ulterior motive for doing so, he allowed himself to be used, and gave up the location of Gondolin, information that he had directly refused to tell under interrogation.
