Trivia that mentions this person:
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring [2001]
  • Christopher Lee reads The Lord of the Rings once a year and is the only member of the cast and crew ever to have met J.R.R. Tolkien.
    Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi: Special Edition [2004]
  • Endor is the name of a place in the Bible; it's a village found in Biblical Israel's territory of Isaachar, where king Saul went on the eve of his final battle with the Phillistines and came across "The Witch of Endor". It also the Elvish name for Middle-Earth in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Extended Edition [2014]
  • The theatrical cut of this movie is the only Peter Jackson-adapted J.R.R. Tolkien film that does not include a "Wilhelm Scream", something that has become a trademark for him. This extended edition includes two scenes in which the "Wilhelm Scream" is used.
    Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs [1937]
  • When the movie was released, it was generally accepted that the correct plural form of "dwarf" was "dwarfs". J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit (published a year earlier) and later [Lord of the Rings] gradually popularized the uncommon variant "dwarves", so that the dwarfs in this movie are today often erroneously referred to as "dwarves" and the title even given as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
    The Stand [1994]
  • The book features many references to, and similarities with, J.R.R. Tolkien's [Lord of the Rings]. One less obvious reference may be the name Nick Andros. Middle-Earth features an island called Cair Andros. Stephen King said that he wanted to write an American version of 'Rings'. Other similarities include Flagg's roving eye, and the group of three ordinary people who defeat a monster. Dayna Jurgens's failed attempt to kill Flagg also parallels Eowyn's fight with the Witch-King of Angmar. Prior to this scene in the book, she sees the necklace Lloyd has, which Flagg gives to all his followers. Rather than being simply a brown stone as in the film, it is a black jewel with a red flaw in the center, resembling a great flaming eye, which actually reminds her of the Eye of Sauron.
