Christopher Lee was a volunteer in the winter war (okay not about the movies, but still it`s an intresting fact)

I used to go around and collect interesting facts about LotR...here are a few from my collection:

-Only one sword was broken during filming
-Two people had the job of making mud on set
-Grima's dandruff was actually instant potato flakes
-The volcanic lava of Mount Doom was made of the same substance as fast food apple pies
-On average, Frodo falls down every 10 minutes during FotR
-The troll's voice is actually that of a walrus with the occasional grunt of a mare in heat
-In the scenes between Arwen and Aragorn, Viggo purposely touched Liv's ears in case there were any fans out there with an Elf ear fetish! (I don't know how they know that!)

Hehe those are great! Especially Frodo falling down every 10 minutes. The last one is funny too :)

this is sort of behind the scenes and stuff but i thought it was funny...
dom and elijah held viggo over the side of the mountain and, while he was screaming, said they would drop him over (or wouldn't pull him up) if he didn't tell them he loved them. :bounce:

The Orcs that want to kill Merry and Pippin and eat their legs in the Orc-camp in TTT are all Andy Serkis's voice overs! (there are other actors/extras playing the Orcs... but Andy does their voices)

Umm - I don't really understand. Are these real facts, as in facts, or things made up for humor? Sorry, I don't catch on easily!

But in case any of you don't know, when Legolas skate-boarded down the stairs on an orc shield at the Battle of Helm's Deep in TTT, there was a string and you can almost see it - okay, that's a lame and obvious fact, but I'm not good at these kind of things!!! :bye2:

To the message now on top of me: yeah, these are real facts :) They're not made up for humor. And your fact was a good one :)

Hey, these things are funny! Maybe I should watch the cast commentary. I've never had the time to do that.

Lol this isn't a fact but it is funny when Viggo(Aragorn) and Sean(Boromir) insulted Orlando (Legolas) about his pointy ears and long hair he sayd to them "At least i don't stink and i'm immortal...Ha."

My fave fact was that the woman (I'm sorry, I don't know her name) who was the riding double for Arwen desperately wanted to buy the horse that was used for Asfoloth, even though she has no idea how she would pay for it. She then discovered that someone higher up in the production company also wanted the horse and so gave up any interest in trying to buy him.

Then Viggo found out about all of this and managed to buy the horse himself. He text her to tell her that he had been successful, but, when she tried to arrange to repay him, he told her that he was giving her the horse. What an absolute gent! :)

At the time they filmed the documentary about the horses, she was looking after Brego until Viggo could have him shipped to the States.

Yeah! I heard that also! What a great guy! That must have been the most unbelievable gift she had ever recieved. Since she was one of the people who rode the horse, I think she deserved first shot at buying her, Go Viggo! :-D
