My favourite Minas Tirith shot is after Gandalf spooks off the Nazgul while rescueing Faramir. The shot follows Gandalf on Shadowfax from behind as they arc around to return to the city. The...

There certainly were scenes cut from the Black Gate Opens sequence (most notably the Mouth of Sauron). One can only assume that the disappearing horses resulted from the cuts. Perhaps this will be...
