I found this dropped Jackson scene a while back click here If he'd used all the dropped scenes and made the missing Tom Bombadil chapters, there could have been another two or three hours of film to enjoy/suffer (delete as appropriate)...:)
Thanks for the link, hssutton. I'll watch it tonight.
I have waqtched the trilogy several times, both at the cinema and the extended DVD versions. They're mostly very well made and well acted, but I don't like the major changes to the Battle of the Pelennor Fields in 'Return'.
I wasn't that fussed about the lack of Bombadil in 'Fellowship', but I would have liked to have seen the inclusion of the allies of Gondor (ie Prince Imrahil etc.). Probably about time I re-read the books again.
