I have long wanted to see a movie – any movie – in which the audience applauds at the end. I’ve always thought I’d have to go to America to do this since they are certainly more unrestrained than the English, but at the end of watching Return of the King in London on the premiere, there was a short yet touchingly honest spread of applause after the final scene. In England, it was as good as a standing ovation.

We got that when I saw it too – only lasted a few seconds before everyone got embarrassed and laughed.
