Goofs

During the fight with Shelob, Sam is holding Frodo's sword which switches between Sam's right and left hand in between shots at least once.


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.
