The reading of the original 1969 contract says differently, and the material to be covered in this latest deal is part of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.

To add to my last post, the bar has been set admittedly low with the LotR movies, and especially The Hobbit movies. Being the rights were sold 48 years ago before there was a 'Tolkien Estate', the...

Pipe Caligula & The War Doctor.

John Hurt was such a great and versatile actor! I loved his portrayal of Caligula in 'I Claudius', and as the 'War Doctor' of Dr Who. The roles already mentioned were epic as well! Rest in Peace John.
