Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring.
The Witch-king's true name was never given, and therefore, among J.R.R. Tolkien fans, the Witch-king is often simply called Angmar, after the name of the realm he founded and led (like how Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington who helped defeat Napoléon at Waterloo, was and is referred to as simply "Wellington"). Many fans also identify him as one of the three Black Númenóreans that J.R.R. Tolkien stated had become Nazgûl or possibly Isilmo, a Númenórean Prince and father of Tar-Minastir. In the now defunct Middle-earth role playing game, he was named "Er-Murazor", a Númenórean Prince, though this is strictly non-canonical. In the Angband computer game, he was listed as "Murazor, the Witch-king of Angmar".
Smeagol, I've got one! I've got a fish, Smeag. Smeagol!
Smeagol: Pull it in. Go on. Go on. Go on. Pull it in.
There is no stairway or other form of entry to the roof of Orthanc. This is most evident in the extended edition of ROTK: Grima's sudden appearance behind Saruman when moments before an all revealing overhead shot didn't show him or any means for him to get there.
Just like the two previous "Lord of the Rings" movies, there are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
In some prints, the subtitles during Aragorn and Elrond's conversation (I give hope to men, I have kept none for myself) are missing.
