got me dragging out my Hammond and Scull you did - hunted through until I found Gandalf getting the trolls turned to stone. Zoomed in.

Well, I'd say he very possibly doesn't have any nose fluff. Not totally clear, but wouldn't rule it out.

{{ I remember it seeming quite good when I was about 14 and into D&D and had Frank Frazetta posters on my bedroomon my wall. As I say its an interesitng film, not a good film, if only for it being a chance to see Frazetta's work animated as he drew all the character designs. And it occasionally rises above its material on the animation side, in particular the fight in the fog, the one on one fight with the bad ice guy and the SW trench run rip off climax on the dragons (also love the music in that scene) but the actual plot and characters come across as also written by a 14 year old who is going through a D&D phase and has Frazetta posters on their bedroom wall. }}

{{ Def no nose hair.

Which interestingly means the Russian illustration of Gandalf is probably closest to Tolkiens own. }}
