I love this trilogy of films. I’ve also listened to all four of the commentary tracks available on the each of the extended version DVDs – yes I really have! It passed away a lot of time while I was doing the ironing on a considerable number of occasions.

So, most of what you’ve said above, Sharon, isn’t news to me but there are some little snippets that will now go into the awful mess in my brain that is my memory for arcane pieces of trivia. Trust me, I can remember the most irrelevant stuff and forget really important things!

One thing that made me smile on one of the commentaries was regarding the Nazgul scream. Philippa Boyens said that Fran Walsh was reacting to (or pretending to) Peter Jackson telling her he’d bought the rights to The Silmarillion!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
