Yeah, that shadow is there in the other versions and I think the make up artists are the one set of artists on the film who could have done a better job in the regular versions (the sunglass lines on Frodo's cheeks drive me nuts), but they couldn't have anticipated blue ray. The follicles are defined here with blue ray in a bothersome way. Make up artists are going to need to really work it more now.

Yes, it's the very same smile, though more defined in the cart scene--and yes, I'm partial to those cart ride smiles, too!!! The whole cart jump-and-ride scene is tied with the boat scene at the end of FotR for my very favorite moments of all the films. I think the smile there at the end of TTT is special because it harkens back to his old self, his sense of humor and loving intelligence. His bed smile in FotR, when he tells Sam he can't sleep either, is almost the same one turned on it's side. (-:

A thorough cataloging, Lavender. :) It stands to reason there'd be a connection between all the smiles you noted, since they're smiled by the same actor playing the same character. Hmmm. "Variations on a Smile by Frodo Baggins" by Elijah Wood. Maybe Howard Shore could do an orchestral setting? Seriously, I think he has: all the shadings of the Shire theme.
