Subject: BS: ??? ending of Return Of The King???
A question for Peg and others-------Is it true that the film of RETURN OF THE KING leaves out the entire chapter of the book "The Scouring Of The Shire" where Sharky (Saruman) has his throat slit by Grima Wormtongue before the hobits riddle the latter's bod with arrows???

I will be quite put out if that is indeed deleated from the film. I was looking forward to seeing how they would re-make the shire into something like the coal-sooty town ala HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY. And then put it all to rights again.
