Sam and his Frying Pan


A blast from the past today.

This was me first use of putty, using it to replace Sam's sword.

This was in 2004 before any "official Sam rocking the sautee pan" figures had been released.

Of course that wouldn't do. I've always thought that Sam is the real hero of the piece and Sean Astin's performance of an everyman forced into combat by necessity, and then finding he had a knack for it. was superb.

Here are some other photos from the time:
