Christopher Lee and Phillip Boyens, regarding Galadriel and the Wizards. . . why do I have a strong feeling Can't Post

that Ms. Boyens would not make some of the statements she makes concerning Galadriel's status among the Chief Wise, if Christopher Lee were sitting at her side during the commentary. . . I know, it seems a strange notion, but it came to me most strongly watching the Best Buy documentary. Phillipa puts emphasis on the fact that Galadriel "decided" to call together the Wise and form a council, which of course is very true, though one notes she puts more emphasis on Galadriel conveneing the council than upon the council itself, its members and their nature. By contrast, Christopher Lee both acknowledges the great power and wisdom of the council as a whole, but also emphasizes Saruman's role within it. He is "Number 1," The head of The Council and the foremost of The Wizards.

I get the very strong feeling that Phillipa would never dream of suggesting to the Legendarium steeped loremaster Lee that Galadriel, mighty and magnificent as we all agree she was, was the most powerful being in Middle-Earth.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
