Christopher Lee as Saruman the White - The Lord of the Rings
Christopher Lee as Saruman the White: The Wizard waging war upon Rohan and devastating Fangorn Forest, who allies himself with Sauron. The fallen head of the Istari Order, who succumbed to Sauron's will via his use of the palantír. After capturing Gandalf, he creates an army of Uruk-hai to find and capture the Ring from the Fellowship. Lee is a major fan of the book, and reads it once a year. He has also met J. R. R. Tolkien.
- The foreword, spoken by Galadriel, shows the Dark Lord Sauron forging the One Ring in order to conquer the lands of Middle-earth. A Last Alliance of Elves and Men is formed to counter Sauron's forces at the foot of Mount Doom, but Sauron kills Elendil, the High King of Men. His son, Prince Isildur grabs Elendil's broken sword Narsil, and slashes at Sauron's hand, separating him from the Ring and vanquishing his army. However, because Sauron's "life force" is bound to the Ring, he is not completely defeated until the Ring itself is destroyed.
- The film begins with a flashback set to the first film, with Gandalf battling the Balrog on the Bridge of Khazad-dûm, but this time continues from Gandalf's perspective, with the scene continuing to follow both as they hurtle down below, fighting while in free-fall. Frodo awakens from his dream and continues his journey with his trusted and loyal friend, Sam. They are then attacked by the ring-possessed Gollum wishing to retrieve "his precious" from the ones he thinks stole it from him. The Hobbits subdue and bind him with Sam's Elven rope given to him by the Elven elder Galadriel in Lórien. Sam distrusts Gollum and wishes to abandon him, but Frodo understands the burden of the creature and takes pity on him. Realizing they are lost in the Emyn Muil and in need of a guide, Frodo persuades Gollum to lead them to the Black Gate of Mordor...
Saruman the White polystone bust Lord of the Rings
Once the wisest and greatest of the Istari the Wizards of Middle-earth, Saruman fell into darkness when he delved to deep into the study of his enemy's ways. The wizard's pride and love of power overcame his wisdom, and all those to whom he had been known as friend became his enemies. He became the chief adversary of the freedom-loving people of Rohan, and by dark means, bred a vast army of terrible Uruk-hai warriors to conquer their lands and destroy them. The essence of Saruman is brilliantly captured in this 1:4 scale bust. Saruman has been hand cast in heavy weight polystone and hand painted to the highest standards. He sits on a classically turned base that includes his full name and the sculptor's signature.
