      Carl,
      Do you honestly think that there is any chance of this happening?

      What I (and, I gather, David) would object to is if this
      list were turned into a forum for discussing the films IN ISOLATION
      from the written works.

        Two answers:

        1. Goldberry (at least) did work. She had a washing-day while the
        hobbits were there.

        2. The Lord labored six days.
