I'm glad you don't think I'm crazy for popnting out the thread of saliva. It's that sort of detail, as you say, that shows what craftsmen and women they were, working on this project. Just brilliant stuff like that, all over the place, much of it barely noticeable watching the films. Yet I do think it's part of what makes the films great.

Your remarks about PJ's little weaknesses as a filmmaker made me laugh. Yes, he does need taking in hand sometimes. He can't resist his little jokes.

And the language? That whole passage is marvelous. I loved the description of the Nazgûl, once summoned: on a storm of wings they "hurtled" southward to Mt. Doom. That was conveyed pretty well by the film artists!

And Jan's poem. Ah, Jan's poem. Yes, it is gorgeous. What a feel she has for her characters, and what eloquence conveying what is going on inside them.
