Deagol: Smeagol, I've got one! I've got a fish, Smeag. Smeagol!

Goofs

When Aragorn and friends ride up to the black gate, in some of the close ups one of the hobbit's scale double's faces can be clearly seen in the background.


Crazy Credits

Christopher Lee, who played Saruman in the film was not originally credited at the end of the film as all the other main characters were because he did not appear in the theatrical version. For the Extended DVD however, he does appear in the film and justly gets his drawn character and name credit with the other actors.
