EXT. DUNHARROW ENCAMPMENT - DAWN

MUCH ACTIVITY ... HORNS SOUND ... the ENTIRE CAMP is on the
MOVE ... fires are DOUSED, TENTS pulled down, HORSES saddled.

EXT. DUNHARROW PLATEAU - DAWN

ANGLE ON: THEODEN strides through the CAMP, EOMER at his SIDE.

                     THEODEN
          We must ride light and swift. It's a long
          road ahead ... and man and beast must reach
          the end with the strength to fight.

ANGLE ON: MERRY . . . preparing a LITTLE PONY with a SADDLE and
SUPPLIES. He is wearing an OVERSIZED HELMET and ROHIRRIM
CLOTHING . . . he looks at once NERVOUS and EXCITED.

KING THEODEN breaks away from a COLUMN and rides up to MERRY.

                         THEODEN (cont'd)
                  (gently)
             Little Hobbits do not belong in war, Master
             Meriadoc!

                       MERRY
             All my friends have gone to battle. I would
             be ashamed to be left behind!

                        THEODEN
             It is a three day gallop to Minas Tirith.
             None of my Riders can bear you as a burden.

                         MERRY
             But . . . I want to fight!

                        THEODEN
             I will say no more.

KING THEODEN wheels his HORSE away . . .

MERRY is bitterly DISAPPOINTED. He stands, head down - a TINY
DEJECTED FIGURE - as the MIGHTY ROHIRRIM on their LARGE
HORSES ride by . . . a jangling sea of HELMETS, SHIELDS and
BANNERS.

SUDDENLY . . . MERRY is plucked off the ground! A SOLDIER has
snatched him by the collar ... and plonked him down on their
SADDLE!

CLOSE ON: MERRY twists around, looking up at the SOLDIER . . .
Beneath a HELMET and MAIL HOOD is . . .

. . . EOWYN, disguised as a MAN!

                       EOWYN
                (grimly)
           Ride with me.

                         MERRY
           My Lady!

CLOSE ON: MERRY'S face visible under the CAPE . . . looking
EXCITED!

                                      Final Revision - October, 2003 76,
CONTINUED: ( 2 )


                       EOMER
                 (shouting above the din)
            Move out - move out!

                       THEODEN
            Ride! Ride now, for Gondor!

EXT. DUNHARROW VALLEY - DAWN

HIGH WIDE: The VALLEY FLOOR as THOUSANDS of HORSEMEN ride out
after their KING.

EXT. PELENNOR FIELDS/MINAS TIRITH - DAY

ANGLE ON: GREAT SIEGE TOWERS and CATAPULTS are ROLLING across
the PELENNOR FIELDS . . . Thousands of FLAMING TORCHES light
the snarling, slathering MORGUL ORCS . . . marching in RAGGED
RANKS.

ANGLES ON: Flowing torrents of ORCS stream past CAVE TROLLS,
beating the DRUMS OF WAR ... MINAS TIRITH lies ahead - only
TWO MILES AWAY!
